Pravaas is Akademi’s new outdoor production.  Pravaas explores issues around climate migration.  The show provides an experience of ancient dance forms and live Carnatic (South Indian classical) singing and music.

Watch landscapes shift and highly skilled dancers and singers move to express some of the pain, suffering and journeys people all over the world have to make as a result of their homes being destroyed as a result of climate change.

Real life stories and experiences of climate migrants will be at the heart of the work. We will be collaborating with scientists and geographers from the UK and India to create a vibrant, meaningful and hopeful work

It will be a 45 minute work set in a way that asks the audience to move to experience the work rather than as a promenade show.

We want Pravaas to instill a curiosity and awareness of some of the problems that aren’t necessarily on our own doorsteps but are global issues.
