NovaDance is embarking on a major new production and are looking to connect with dancers trained in classical Indian dance styles. We’ll be hosting a gathering to talk about the Vancouver area body-choir we plan to develop and will offer a professional level workshop.
Participation in the workshop will be via RSVP to Nova Dance. Details coming soon.
Svāhā is a work for 15 Indian classical dancers premiering in Toronto in 20/21 and touring to Vancouver later that year. A local body-choir assembled from semi-professional dancers and members of South Asian diaspora communities of an additional 30-75 performers will be incorporated into the performance. We will also offer a professional level intensive for Vancouver dancers, providing training in Nova Dance’s repertoire with a view to casting for the ensemble cast.
Loosely inspired by Réjean Ducharme's book of poems L’Hiver de force, Straight Jacket Winter is a semi-autobiographical work about the the growing phenomenon of mass mobility and its repercussions for our social and emotional lives, and for our sense of who we are.
