JACOB and NOVA (2011)
by Jacob Zimmer and Nova Bhattacharya
After years of working as a dramaturge, Jacob Zimmer makes his choreographic debut with Dancemakers. Story Dance Radio, he tells a simple story framed by the sound and music of the 70's; rebellion, liberation and death, with looks that might, now, undermine all the seriousness.
Nova Bhattacharya is a trailblazer known for bringing classical Indian dance into a contemporary aesthetic. In her Dancemakers choreographic debut, she takes us on a journey through an abstract physical world with a sense of limitless possibility and boundless space.
