From Jacob’s Pillow
A second-generation Indian and American artist, Mythili Prakash is one of the most celebrated and respected young Bharatanatyam dancer/choreographers today. On Friday, July 21, at Jacob’s Pillow, Prakash and her cast of female musicians will perform She’s Auspicious, a work she developed at the Pillow Lab in 2022. In this piece, Prakash re-examines her femininity and the way she performs it in her various identities as a woman, a mother, and a classical Indian dancer.
