Weaving together lyrics, dance, and visual design, the innovative Prakriti Dance uses the movement vocabulary of the Indian classical dance form Bharata Natyam to transcend cultural boundaries. Founded by Co-Artistic Directors Kasi Aysola and Madhvi Venkatesh, the company draws inspirations from nature, philosophy, poetry, and other genres to bring modern-day themes into an ever-evolving Indian art form. Prakriti Dance seeks to broaden accessibility for Indian arts. Based in the Washington, DC metro area, the company has performed at the Kennedy Center and in festivals around the country.
