"Sreyashi Dey continued her dance journey with an
Odissi/Manipuri collaboration in "Angika." Dey and
Manoranjan Pradhan articulated the nobility and fluidity
that is the hallmark of the Odissi heritage. Most
fascinating was the trading of phrases so that audience
members could clearly learn from the two dance traditions
and appreciate, in particular, Dey's powerful emotional
range, from a serene countenance to a fierce anger."

"The numbers chosen by Sreyashi from the opening number
Omkara to the final number Dashavatara had excellent
visual appeal and thematic unity. Pallavi gave scope to
the dancers to explore various similar patterns in pure
dance. The structure of the choreographed number left an
indelible impression and was the most successful number.
The dance and music vied with one another and the
performers delighted the onlookers with enchanting vibrant
appeal. In Ardhanareeswara, describing Lord Shiva in half
male and half female aspect, offered Manoranjan Pradhan to
display vigorous, tandava, element and Sreyashi executed
delicate, lasya, movements mirroring the Sanskrit hymn
that has exquisite poetic images.
Each incarnation of Dashavatara was danced with verve and
energy. The depiction was imaginative and well executed,
wanting onlookers to see more of the richness of the two
forms. Sreyashi represents the new generation of Indian
diaspora whose phenomenal success is well recognized by
the host country and its multi-dimensional culture."
