“A mesmerizing dance and music performance of the highest possible standards by artists with severe disabilities.” Asian Voice, London, 8th November 2014
Project Description: The opportunity to adapt a timeless Indian fable for the stage for the Samarthanam School for the Disabled to open their USA tour and London performance. (see Blog). The goal was not only give the performers text in the English language for the first time, but to also raise the overall production values: costume, sound design and projections. The Bangalore based design team and choreographers were astounding and highly supportive of the overall vision.

“Like all NAATCO undertakings, A Number is done with skill and grace and an uncommon concern for shining a light on our moral obligation to be worthy residents of this particular patch of space and time. Highly recommended.” – Scott Stiffler, Chelsea Now
“A Number…particularly when realized as well as it is here…remains a fascinating study of second chances and their consequences.” Dan Bacalzo, Theatermania

The play explores cloning and common bonds. The topic has never been more relevant and the end product was dynamic due to strong performances and simple staging. I had a financial stake in A Number demonstrating how strongly I believed in this unique, multi-cultural approach to storytelling.
