Under the artistic direction of choreographer Urja Desai, Pagrav Dance Company’s emotion-driven story-telling creates distinctive dance works which originate in contemporary and Kathak idioms.  Intense, energetic and thought-provoking, Detox is Pagrav‘s latest production.  Desai investigates the phenomenon of detoxification through the prism of our conflict between desire for and rejection of toxicity. Here is a work for our time, yet detoxification is as old as civilization. Desai brings together a cast of five dancers and an imaginative design concept to deconstruct notions of excess and consumption and to explore how cleansing can ignite self-discovery and reveal true potential.

Conceived as a result of research in 2013 and developed with the support of a Choreogata award from Akademi in partnership with Southbank Centre and Gem Arts, the full length production of Detox premiered in November 2015. Detox is available for touring in autumn 2016.
