HERE and NOW is a work in progress choreographed and performed by Mythili Prakash- one of the most celebrated and respected young practitioners of Bharata Natyam, the classical dance form of India.
Originally from LA, Mythili grew up dancing at Shakti School of Bharata Natyam which was founded by her Mother Viji Prakash in 1997. Shakti is one of oldest and the premier institutions of Bharata Natyam in Southern California.
She performed her solo debut at the age of eight and has since performed extensively in the United States, Mexico, Canada, United Kingdom, Scotland, France, Singapore, and India.
In the weeks leading up to a double bill performance with L.A. Dance Project, Mythili sat down to talk with us about connecting LA's diverse dance audiences, the illusion of time, and being a Mom.
