UNSW Dance Company 2017

UNSW Dance Co. with Raghav Handa

Raghav will introduce participants to methods and techniques he employs to create material for performance. Participants will also focus on exploring systems to generate movement ideas. Dancers will work with his movement style as they investigate ways to combine and advance textures within their own physicality. The course will work towards the participants navigating Raghav’s dynamic choreographic scores and utilising physical modalities explored in the creation of his works. This is a unique opportunity for artists interested in experiencing a full work cycle – taking an idea from its initial exploration and development stage through to the presentation.

The company will present a final work at Moving On, UNSW End of Year Dance Show


Biography

Raghav Handa

Raghav is an Australian choreographer and performer of Indian heritage with training in modern and Indigenous contemporary dance. As a choreographer, Raghav’s contemporary dance language interplays the circular and linear movement patterns of traditional Kathak dance accentuated by an overlay of speed and precision. His choreographic works include KumKum 2012, Tukre’ 2014-15 and Mens Rea: The Shifter’s Intent 2016 touring across Australia and internationally. As a performer, Raghav has collaborated and toured with many of Australia’s leading Indigenous and non-indigenous choreographers including Marilyn Miller, Vicki van Hout, Sue Healey, Danielle Micich and Martin Del Amo. Currently, Raghav is developing his new ensemble work Silent Trio Beats exploring physical motion extremes using a sixteen-beat time cycle.
