Citadel + Compagnie presents decoding bharatnatyam, a triple bill illuminating contemporary Canadian bharatnatyam dance, Feb 14-17, 2018 at The Citadel: Ross Centre for Dance. Showcasing the talent of Toronto’s award-winning choreographer Nova Bhattacharya, one of the country’s preeminent bharatnatyam practitioners, this presentation celebrates India’s exquisite multi-disciplinary art form. Exploring the overlapping of cultures, Bhattacharya will share two of her acclaimed works: Broken Lines (2016) and Alaap (2013). Praised for her “entrancing personal intensity”, Bhattacharya will also treat audiences to a stunning solo in Calm Abiding, a 2006 commission from Montreal choreographer José Navas.
