"From the first moment, music and dance worked together in trance-inducing harmony."
The New York Times

The dynamic Mythili Prakash began her career as a Bharata Natyam performer at the age of eight. Since 1990, she has toured as a soloist in the United Kingdom, Scotland, France, Singapore, the United States, and Mexico. Highly acclaimed for her virtuosic skill as a performer, she stays deeply rooted in the inherent spirituality of the art form, which is the driving inspiration of her choreographic explorations. She was also cast in the award-winning film Life of Pi (2012).

She makes her Connecticut debut to conclude the 42nd annual Navaratri Festival at Wesleyan.

Associate Professor of Dance Hari Krishnan will engage in a post-performance discussion with Mythili Prakash and her musicians.
