Nominated for 4 Dora Mavor Moore Awards (Choreography, performance, lighting and sound design), Akshongay is a contemporary dance duet that brings together multiple influences; bharatanatyam, modern dance; Hindu mythology, French Canadian folklore; love and loss; togetherness and separation; regrets and passions; joy and heartbreak. Intimate, rich with powerful images, a hybrid physical vocabulary and theatrical sensibility combine to create a hypnotic journey.
