Celebrating Asian/Pacific Islander Heritage Month Through Fish Eyes: Indian Classical Dance

Tuesday, May 21, 2019, 3 p.m.

Through Fish Eyes, a work that combines art and science, is a unique performance that utilizes the classical Indian dance form Bharata Natyam to create awareness about the world's dwindling marine ecosystems. The ocean comes to life, telling tales of how man and nature co-existed in harmony. The abundant and thriving ocean has now been ravaged by humankind, leaving it in a critical state. We are the hand that has destroyed it. Can we now be the hand of change, or is it too late?

This is a work in progress by Prakriti Dance, who will be performing at the Kennedy Center on May 25.
