Divya Kasturi and Watford Palace Theatre presents ‘FORGOT YOUR PASSWORD?’
What happens when a stranger takes over your online identity?
Do you find yourselves having to create innumerable number of usernames and passwords for almost every window that you end up opening online? Inspired by real –life experiences, this theatrical-dance work explores issues of trust and identity integrating hologram technology, contemporary South Asian dance and mesmerizing live vocals.
Electronics engineer turned performance maker, Divya Kasturi has worked with Sir Paul McCartney and Nitin Sawhney. She has performed all over the world including New York, Paris, London and Mumbai. Her work uses digital technology that captivates audiences and augments her unique movement style.

What the critics say:
Humorous, refreshing, soulful, satisfying.
“The dancers use touchscreen gestures on each other’s bodies – the kind of pinching and stroking we’re used to conducting on our touchscreen phones. For me, this made a satisfying point – juxtaposing true physical contact and online communication.”
- Alan Ward on FYP’s work in progress showcase at the South Bank Centre
