Pratima Agrawal

Pratima Agrawal is a local performing artist, teaching artist, and administrator. While she considers herself from Austin, TX, she moved to Philadelphia four years ago by way of Bethlehem, PA for the city’s vibrant theatre and arts scene and is inspired by the progressive community voices within and outside of the arts. She finds purpose in working on projects that challenge her as an artist and push the boundaries of art and humanity. She also volunteers for the Philadelphia Ready for 100 clean energy campaign and is a Sixers fan.

Voided

What is it to be an unconventional Indian woman trying to exist in a marginalizing world? Voided was a solo performance inspired by Pratima's own experiences and the true story of Kalpana Chawla (the first Indian female astronaut in space who died in the 2003 Columbia accident). It's the exploration of culture, status quo, and representation that dares to color outside the lines.
