"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."
