Prakshi Malik

Dancer since 2014.

I dance to be part of transformation. In Ananya Dance Theatre, I find social justice articulated in an aesthetic that calls to me and I dance to learn this new language. My favorite moment in the ADT rep was being captivated by Hui Wilcox putting black lipstick on her face during Moreechika in 2012. That was the first time I saw ADT perform. I grew up in Delhi, India and want to work from the paradigms of global communities of color, towards decolonization and strength in womanhood.
