Within starts in darkness and moves into the light in two linked but distinctively different works, the combination of which is greatly moving. - Deborah Jones, deborahjhones.me, 22nd February 2016


The finesse and individuality of Mangaldas' dancers are displayed in formal groupings but the undeniable highlight is a lightning fast, lustrous solo for the choreographer, who darts and flutters like a joyous humming bird.

Her work Within...transports it audience into the rich musical and visual world of Kathak...with a twist

Classical Indian dance that delivers both narrative intelligence and jaw-dropping virtuosity.
