SIFAS proudly presents PRAKRITI VIKRITI, a unique dance production representing the phenomena of Nature. Prakriti, nature, is constituted of the five elements; the pañca bhūta-s; earth, water, fire, wind and cosmos, the basic sources of life in the universe. The dance repertoire explores how nature helps us when it is enjoyed and worshipped and how life on the earth suffers when it is destroyed and misused, which is reflected in the title Pra | Vi Kriti, the nurturing and destructive nature of nature.

PRAKRITI VIKRITI is a conglomeration of three Indian Classical Dance forms, Bharata Naytyam, Kathak and Kuchipudi, and the choreography is set to poetry from ancient Tamil and Sanskrit literatures as well as lyrics in Hindi and Telugu. Ragas set in both Hindustani and Carnatic styles, depict each season and the production combines dance and music as it invokes and explores nature’s nature.

Produced by the Singapore Indian Fine Arts Society with Esplanade as a Venue Partner, Prakriti Vikrit is a poetic lyrical dance saga man the elements of nature.
