Amala Dance proudly presents Rukmini Vijayakumar's solo performance with a special invocation performance and new choreographic work by Shaheen Sheik-Sadhal.

“The slender, supple Ms. Vijayakumar has a stirringly beautiful face, with burning eyes that repeatedly catch the observer’s breath; and she makes those eyes part of the fabric of the dance… In terms of gesture, switches of angle and communicating swift changes of emotion (alarm, then surprise, then joy), she is not just engaging but also authoritative.”
- The New York Times

The Los Angeles Times described Shaheen Sheik-Sadhal's portrayal of Krishna in 'Kodhai's Dream' as "commanding" and her performance of the Jatiswaram as "a breathtaking finale showcasing [her] dexterity in accelerating cycles of intricate footwork, swift turns and sweeping arm gestures."
