Inspired by the Mahabharata epic, Prakriti Dance’s production of Amba Shikandi: A Journey of Courage narrates the story of Amba, who goes to any lengths to find her justice. Taken away from her true love by Bhishma, she cannot marry and finds herself ostracized and alone. Instead of accepting her fate, she seeks divine intervention to find her own justice. Like Amba, may we all have the courage to follow our own journeys and find our true destinies. May the roaring flame of Amba Shikandi’s spirit blaze a path for all.

Founded by Co-Artistic Directors Kasi Aysola and Madhvi Venkatesh, Prakriti Dance uses the movement vocabulary of Bharata Natyam to communicate inspirations from nature, philosophy and the human experience. By interweaving lyrics, dance and visual design, Prakriti Dance explores multifaceted performances that transcend cultural boundaries.
