Winter Workshop #1
In this two-day masterclass, Raghav Handa will teach his process of creating full-length performance works. He will guide you through his practice of utilising text and culturally specific material to create compositions and fiery contemporary works.
- A piece of text that you have either found or written that you can speak aloud.
- Come with a question – maybe the question is about something you are struggling with or maybe it is about a part of your practice that you want to have opened.
Raghav Handa is trained in modern and Indigenous contemporary dance and draws on the principles of Indian Kathak to create multifaceted, engaging explorations of modern Australian identity. His works challenge cultural and contemporary norms by navigating the “preciousness” and complexities that surround traditional hierarchies. By utilising his Indian heritage to create spaces that foster robust discussion and risk taking, he encourages his audience to come to their own conclusions rather than imposing his own. His creations are novel, engaging and often playful, but he also likes to play with fire!
