Nova Bhattacharya is an award winning artist working in the multi-disciplin­ary art form of bharatnatyam. An eloquent performer, she is described by the press as "sly and dreamily contemplative" (Now Magazine), a "contained goddess" (Globe & Mail), and a "mischievous visitor from another world. " (Marksiche Allemeine). Her choreography has been described as "radical work that pulls apart notions of power, tradition, and ritual, puncturing exoticism." She danced in Karen Kaeja's Women's Project (2004), and choreographed for the inaugural Porch View Dances in 2012. Next up Nova dances in Decoding Bharatnatyam in Citadel & Compagnie's Bright Nights series (February 14-17).

Kaeja d’Dance would like to acknowledge that we are situated upon traditional territories. Our artists, collaborators, staff and team are grateful to be creating art on this land that has been nurtured by recorded and unrecorded human activity for by thousands of years. We honour and respect the traditional lands and waterways of the Wendat, Anishinabek Nation, the Haudenosaunee Confederacy, the Mississaugas of the Credit First Nation, and the Métis Nation. We are in the 'Dish with One Spoon' territory - a treaty between these nations reflecting a commitment to share the territory and protect the land. We also recognize the enduring presence of diverse Indigenous peoples on this land.
