About Production I Illuminate and In The Moment, a collaboration between Rhythmosaic Sengupta Dance Company and MFA Students of The Hong Kong Academy For Performing Arts". 2018
"I enjoyed so much your work tonight. Your dancing was riveting. I was enthralled from the moment you stepped onto the stage. You have such clarity in each movement, such strength and staccato that you contrast so beautifully with legato expression and gesture. Your story telling is so compelling, through arm and hand gestures, facial gesture and expression, and rhythmic foot work that I am totally engaged with it throughout the dance. And I am so very happy that Shambik has found such great success with you. Please extend my congratulations to him for his excellent work. Congratulations and thank you for a wonderful evening."

She spins around and around really fast with her long, black braided hair spinning in the air and her hands gesturing up and down.
"It's all about the center point. All the movements start and return to the center point of the body," gasps Mitul Sengupta, a 35-year-old Indian dancer-choreographer, who displays a movement of kathak, a major Indian classical dance form, at the theater of Beijing Dance/LDTX.
This is part of her latest choreography work, titled White Lotus - Black Sand, which will be staged at Beijing's Tianqiao Performing Arts Center on Friday and will travel to Taiyuan in Shanxi province on Monday.
The work is the first collaborative project between Rhythmosaic-Sengupta Dance Company, which was founded by Sengupta 10 years ago along with her husband, Ronnie Shambik Ghose, who graduated from the Hong Kong Academy for Performing Arts with a major in musical theater dance, and Beijing Dance/LDTX, which was founded by Willy Tsao in 2005.
