Prakriti: The Faces of Goddess Earth visualizes the spiritual cycle from creation to liberation. The cosmic mother is the womb, Garbini, from which the entire universe and earth are born as the basis for all life. Thus, as the earth goddess, she breathes life into all creatures on earth. Ultimately, she herself consumes all, reuniting the core of oneness.

Founded by Co-Artistic Directors Kasi Aysola and Madhvi Venkatesh, Prakriti Dance uses the movement vocabulary of the Indian classical dance form, Bharata Natyam, to communicate inspirations from nature, philosophy and human experience. Prakriti Dance uses traditional lexicon to communicate diverse ideas relevant across all communities. By interweaving lyrics, dance and visual design, Prakriti Dance explores multifaceted presentations to transcend cultural boundaries.

Artist co-presenation.
