A New Spin on an Old Classic

Punyah Krishna and other works by Parshwanath Upadhye By Aparita Bhandari

Rockstar bharatanatyam dancer Parshwanath Upadhye performed in an evening of contemporary bharatanatyam, presented by Sampradayada Dance Creations. Upadhye’s interpretation of a devotee’s adoration of Shiva, more specifically at the famous Chidambaram temple, was both athletic and graceful. His high kicks, leaps and knee turns did not come at the cost of nuances such as beautifully articulated mudras or clarity of movement in his adavus.

Canada's International Dance Day Message 2017

Since 2005, the Canadian Dance Assembly (CDA) has issued a message on behalf of the dance community in Canada as part of International Dance Day (IDD) on April 29. This year’s IDD Ambassador is Montréal-based dance artist and Sinha Danse Artistic Director Roger Sinha. He was invited to share his message about dance’s integral place in the lives of Canadians.

Toppling Taboos by Taking On Sacred Cows

Holy Cow(s)! by Hari Krishnan By Aparita Bhandari Holy Cow(s)!

Hari Krishnan has always challenged simplistic notions of tradition. His latest work, Holy Cow(s)!, attempts to break up what Krishnan calls “false binaries”, informed by news headlines around the election of Donald Trump and stereotypes that Krishnan has had to deal with all his life.

Dancing Through Migraines and Other Pains

Infinite Storms by Nova Dance By Aparita Bhandari Infinite Storms

These are times in which we need to bear witness. The impetus for Nova Bhattacharya’s latest work, Infinite Storms, came from her experience living with migraines yet speaks to a greater, universal suffering. How do we persevere through pain?
