Event description

Description

decoding bharatnatyam showcases the work of award-winning choreographer Nova Bhattacharya and her passion for querying the contemporary and ‘riffing off’ of the classical Indian ‘Bharatnatyam’ technique to stunning effect. Broken Lines is described as a love letter to bharatnatyam dancers – ‘a radical work that pulls apart notions of power, tradition and ritual’; Alaap is a thoughtfully crafted meditation on the creation of the universe; and Map of the Known World, the celebrated solo for Bhattacharya commissioned from Peggy Baker, incorporates the poetry, precision and theatricality of a traditional Indian dance style that continues to take its place in Canadian contemporary expression.
