Double Bill with one small thing.
Broken Lines appears first, in The Theatre Centre BMO Incubator, followed by one small thing in Lisgar Park.
Latecomers permitted up until 3 minutes after the start of the performance.
Award winning choreographer Nova Bhattacharya offers a new creation that pushes the limits of bharatnatyam’s signature precision, theatricality, and rhythmic complexity. Dancers extraordinaire Neena Jayarajan and Atri Nundy embark on a deliberate and chaotic race to a broken finish line. Are they in it together? Or is it each woman for herself? Light and dark, playful and ominous – Broken Lines is an encounter with physical and emotional extremes. On your mark, get set, tharikatathom!
Choreographed by Nova Bhattacharya; Created with and Performed by Atri Nundy and Neena Jayarajan; Produced by Nova Dance.
"Bhattacharya looks at letting go, losing control, getting lost, and getting found again - nurturing an aesthetic history while also breaking it open to see what can be pushed, transformed and transferred. From one style to another, one performer to another, Bhattacharya asks two movement practices to exchange, converse, and confront." - Jenn Goodwin
