Critics' Reviews

“ Full of metaphors & Layers with intense precision and discipline throughout. The music kept me engaged as well. Like Dhrut, a very juxtaposition end which I absolutely loved. The exceptional lighting design added to it even more ”

“ Nagdev's choreography left me squirming in my chair through the act and rankled a long time later with the questions it raises. This marriage of art and social responsibility which forces you to reflect proactively and do something. ”

“ Extremely innovative with superb dancers . What interested me the most was their concept on the futuristic unknown journey of human race and also the treatment of it had many subtle suggestions that were thought provoking. Rarely do I see an Indian contemporary dance where it has not obviously branched out of a classical form and Jan Jaati had very interesting elements of mime and Martha Graham style of dance in his production. ”

“ A powerful work of talk and dance, a real rib tickler. But overcome by recent developments in his life, the concluding part ended on a sad note ”

“ Sumeet Nagdev's infectious energy reflects in his work. With Jan Jaati we also get to see a more perceptive choreographer who delves deeper into the human psyche and explores relationship dynamics. The production further exemplifies his ability to seamlessly intersperse Indian tradition in contemporary dance vocabulary ”

“ Sometimes when you watch a performance, you are either entertained by the artists, or left in wonder by artistry or provoked by the topic and it's depiction or simply moved. Well i must say, I happily felt all of the above. The strong and agile dancers were immersed in the complex characters they played and performed with great conviction. I feel it's the genius vision, choreography and direction of Mr Sumeet, that beautifully and creatively etched out a very complicated but poignant reality of our existence in today's world. It entertained, amused but also forced you take a moment and reflect. ”

“ A very intriguing work created with deliberation and intent. Pieces that stood out for me was the trio at the table which was a peek into the essence of corporate culture and cut throat competition. The fantastic choreography with excellent group dynamics kept the audience entertained while revealing uncomfortable truths from our day to day interactions. Congratulations to the three magnificient dancers and to the choreographer Sumeet. Great work ”
