“Last summer, Pampi was one of the participants in Somerville Dance Fest, an outdoors dance exhibition featuring local dance groups. One component of this program was the application of a live webcam and/or projections onto a screen for each performance.

Pampi’s performance was one of a few that actively engaged both these aspects. Her concept was well thought out and implemented beautifully. Through various rehearsals we worked together to create her vision so that in the performance it ran very smoothly.

What I enjoyed about working with Pampi is her ability to see things with an overarching ‘eye’ instead of being limited to one discipline/art form. … “Contemporary temple dance” has the potential to be an intriguing fusion of styles that I’m confident Pampi can explore with honesty and an artful expression that will ultimately benefit the dance community as a whole.”
