Tapping into the competitive chaos, creativity and colour of the event, Pagrav Dance Company brings to life stories with enchanting lyricism, exquisite technique and strong drama. Founded by acclaimed dancer, choreographer and teacher Urja Desai Thakore (recently BBC Young dancer choreographer), the company creates work rooted in Kathak as a dance style and storytelling form which Thakore weaves with other contemporary elements including visual design by Simon Daw (Rambert, National Theatre).

Created and performed by a new generation of British dancers of Indian heritage and accomplished musicians playing live, we are invited into the highs and lows, loves and losses of the festival and ultimately of our connections with each other.

"Combines the modern with the traditional… producing dance that is both powerfully evocative, yet frankly relevant."

Commissioned by Sadler's Wells. Funded by Arts Council England and Milton Keynes Council in partnership with Akademi, South East Dance, University of Bedfordshire, Quarterhouse, MK Gallery, SAA UK and Gem Arts.
