Choreographer Nova Bhattacharya had been poised to begin a 75-dancer work when the pandemic hit. Then, she had to reimagine what was at the heart of dance, of the notion of “company”, “ensemble”, a practice based in the body, bodies, multiplicity, proximity, and touch. Through a series of literary essays, this book delves into a key moment in Canada’s dance-making and the resilience of artists. We at DCD and Nova Dance are delighted with the final product and we can’t wait to share it with you.
