Since the inception of the Prakriti Foundation, we have been showcasing contemporary dance as a significant element of our festivals and events. In India there are few practitioners in this field due to the lack of strong nurturing platforms that provide international exposure.
We at Prakriti Foundation believe that contemporary dance is the new emerging form of expression that weaves its own language and
grammar in India. This needs to be recognized and mentored, thus enabling artists to achieve a level of excellence. Hence, we have instituted the
"Prakriti Excellence in Contemporary Dance Awards (PECDA)" as a platform for emerging contemporary dance forms, where by exposing artists
to a wider audience.
