PURUSHARTHA - Excerpts from Reviews

"Watching Purushartha was like seeing the various impressions and perceptions about the colour white, the Japanese sense of the austere and stark, the Indian ethos of renunciation and the electric existence of sounds that define modernity."

- Chitra Mahesh, Deccan Chronicle, Chennai, February 16th, 2008

"There also lies within the entire thing a Buddhist like serenity. This is not so much in an obvious was as in the way the sounds and the movements converge in the most ancient state of being – a sense of the silence within."

- Chitra Mahesh, Deccan Chronicle, Chennai, February 16th, 2008

"The overall effect was of a monochrome palette that was severe yet dramatic, threadbare in ostentation yet rich in artistic impulses. The sheen of professionalism ran through every aspect; 'Purushartha' was in essence 'new age' artistry."

- Rupa Srikanth, The Hindu, Chennai, February 15th, 2008

"Attakkalari has managed to go beyond the customary projections on the cyclorama."

- Nirmala Ravindran, India Today, Simply Bangalore, February, 2008

"It is one of those few combinations of science and art that when depicted on the stage give out soothing effect, something that is sensuous and touched the heart."
