Aman, who attended Imperfect lauded the show saying, ‘Imperfect, with its twelve vividly imaginative dancers left its audience in awe. Imperfect touched me from the moment it got us scribbling on the poster to confirm our presence, to a completely improvised yet synchronised show being so successful.’
Roma who attended both the shows, distinguished them as, ’The aftertaste of the two shows curated by Parth were bitter-sweet for me. Fleetin’ had a cautious yet curious aftermath. Whereas, imperfect made me realise that sometimes what we are looking for, is right in front of our eyes, hidden under a pile of mess. The two pieces will always be fresh in my memory for they left such a great impact on it.’
