One woman, several moments in time.
Smart, sexy and engaging, Isolated Incidents is a collection of solos tracing random incidents in one woman's life. Celebrated as one of Canada's favourite dance artists, Nova Bhattacharya performs a full evening of her own choreography. Each solo brings a new glimpse into the transformative journey of this eloquent performer who has been described in turns as "sly and dreamily contemplative" (NOW Magazine), "a contained goddess" (The Globe & Mail) and "a mischievous visitor from another world..." (Märksiche Allemeine).
Bhattacharya's new work is an evening of graceful precision, haunting simplicity and a few surprises.
"Solo dance artist Nova Bhattacharya proves that bharatanatyam can be funny in her new work Isolated Incidents... This clever east meets west fusion expresses the wonder of the human imagination. Ed Hanley’s score and Marc Parent’s lighting are wonderfully evocative."

"...take the journey along with the artist and arrive elated at the end by her efforts to question, poke fun at and deconstruct her life and her practice. [Nova Bhattacharya is] a dancer and choreographer of fierce intelligence and integrity with a delightfully wicked sense of humour."
