Prakriti: A History of the Present

by Ishti

from Chicago, IL

About This Show

Prakriti, or our primal matter, explores our unwillingness to accept views, beliefs, or behavior that differ from our own. This work traverses through our human reactions to the different and explores ways to find balance.

Ishti is a collaborative team composed of Kinnari Vora and Preeti Veerlapati. Leveraging their mixed upbringings and experiences, the duo’s artistic work draws inspiration from their Eastern and Western dance trainings in Bharatanatyam, Kathak, Kuchipudi, Kallari, Folk and Western Contemporary. The duo strives to focus on topics that are both relevant and accessible to their communities.
