Stephanie Burridge, Inkpot Reviews (March, 2008)
“…a significant departure from classical Indian dance… excavating the essence of Odissi… dancer-choreographer Raka Maitra is involved in charting contemporary Indian dance in Singapore through events such as the Graey Festival.”

June Cheong, The Straits Times Life! (May, 2007)
“…a festival that is a first of its kind here…making five days of breathing dance come true.”

Stephanie Burridge, TimeOut Singapore (May, 2007)
“The Graey Festival..hones in on the blending of tradition and innovation… (the festival) unites artists from Singapore, India and other parts of the world to present contemporary dance.”

Lee Suan Hiang, then-CEO National Arts Council (May , 2007)
“…this Graey Festival, which complements the Singapore Arts Festival in presenting Indian Contemporary Dance, will make a difference to the development and awareness of the art form in Singapore.”

T.Sasitharan, Director Theatre Training and Research Program (February, 2007)
“The Graey Festival.. is that rare, thoughtful and necessary coming together of practitioners of dance and theatre, from Singapore, India and other parts of the world, with a view, precisely, to re-present the ‘Indian Contemporary’ in the performing arts and to review and re-examine this magnificient heritage form a completely novel standpoint - Singapore.”
