Presented By Pagrav Dance


10 - 11 September | 3.15pm & 4.30pm | Westferry Circus, Canary Wharf

Playfully questioning perceptions, Urja Desai Thakore and Hetain Patel put classical Indian dance right in the heart of the city, reframing movement with sound and text to reveal insights and surprises at every turn.  

In this newly commissioned show, Kathak, music, fashion and spoken word will disrupt the everyday and invite you to think again about your own assumptions.
