    Hello! I’m Nova Bhattacharya. My parents came to Canada from West Bengal, India in the late 60’s and first settled on Mi’kma’Ki in eastern Canada. When I was born, they named me Nova to honour Nova Scotia and their dreams for a new life.

    Growing up in an immigrant culture had a huge impact on my outlook on life and my approach to my art. I was constantly witness to people’s curiosity about differences and celebration of commonalities. In dance I’ve always been fascinated by differences, different physiques mastering the same movement, different personalities expressing similar emotions. This led to many collaborations with artists whose training and techniques were vastly different from my bharatnatyam background.

    Réunit les 28 et 29 novembre à l’Hôtel Zero1 pour deux jours de cocréation et de codéveloppement professionnel, les quatre équipes du LabDSR ont eu l’occasion d’avancer à pas de géant dans la conception de leurs solutions numériques pour développer les publics de la danse.

    Les juges du hackathon LabDSR ont remis une bourse de 1000$ à l’équipe “ Danse Danse, Série Danse / Centre Culturel de l’Université de Sherbrooke et RUBBERBANDance Group”. Affectueusement surnommés “nos dragons”, les juges Etienne Boaknin, à la tête des solutions numériques et maintenance chez SNC Lavalin et Emmanuel Verrier-Choquette fondateur du cabinet-boutique en stratégie Authentique Partners, ont décerné ce prix à l’équipe en soulignant le potentiel de développement et de mise en marché de la solution proposée.

    Le LabDSR est soutenu par le fonds Stratégie numérique du Conseil des Arts du Canada dans la composante Accessibilité aux arts et engagement culturel des citoyens. Les principaux partenaires sont: le Lab culturel de Culture pour tous, La Machinerie, le Pôle médias et divertissement de HEC Montréal, Québec numérique, le Regroupement québécois de la danse et le RIDEAU.

    Aria Evans is part of the 2018-19 cohort of the Quebec-Ontario project. This pilot project offers assistance to artists who identify with Indigenous or racialized communities.

    “My name is Aria Evans, currently based in Toronto, I grew up on Vancouver Island and have East Coast roots. I am a multidisciplinary dance artist and film maker.

    I started making work because I couldn’t fully relate to the stories that were being placed on me and I didn’t see myself represented in the work I was going to see. I wanted to weave my experiences as a person of mixed race (Mi’kmaq, African, settler heritage) into the fabric of our culture. With the ultimate goal of finding a place of common ground, I create collective stories with people of different cultural backgrounds.

    I’m currently developing my first full-length work — In The Abyss
