Prakriti: A History of the Present” is an exploration into how we, humanity, have arrived to our present day climate. We seek to understand why we can be so unwilling to listen to views, beliefs or behaviors different from our own. We journey to our most primitive/primal times to discover our need for tribes, reactions to the different, and ability to find balance. The initial stages in the development of this production involved discussions, interviews and surveys to study people's reaction and their means to find balance in the current social-political environment. A work-in-progress showing was completed in September 2017 at Chicago Fringe Festival. This full length immersive multimedia production is a collaboration of movement, music and visual art. The dance choreography is rooted in Indian classical dance, Indian tribal and folk dance, the South Indian martial art form of Kalaripayattu, and Western modern/contemporary dance forms.  Concept/Choreography: Kinnari Vora and Preeti VeerlapatiMusic: Bob GarrettVideo Installation: Shawn ConveyLight Design: Geoffrey Bushor Press: For press and marketing inquiries, please contact August Forte: august@novo.net, 773-278-6686 Dates/Times Doors open 30 minutes before showtime.  September 28 at 7:30 pm September 29 at 3:30 pm  September 29 at 7:30 pm Tickets General admission tickets are $20 and Student/Senior tickets are $15.
