Some Press Comments

“There’s language in her eye, her cheek, her lip Nay, her foot speaks, her wanton spirits look out at every joint and motive of her body, Her body attitudes and movement of arms evoke the contours of miniature painting, and with her soft, rhythmic foot work, she writes love poems on the stage”.

“Uma’s moving Abhinaya to Sikh Guru’s Poems”

Well, the miracle did happen and Uma Sharma gave one of her most inspired performances to date, evoking and imaging a Krishna who seemed to have as many faces and forms as there were Rasiks in the hall.

“New vistas for Kathak”
It is in her presentation of pure bhav that Uma Sharma has achieved a tour de force. She held the audience enthralled with facial improvisations and gestures from the stage.
