Nithya Nagarajan

Nithya Nagarajan

Art Forms: Dance, Performance

Residency Year: 2021

Lives / works: Gadigal Lands, Eora Nation, NSW

Nithya Nagarajan is an artist and curator whose practice adopts movement as a system of inquiry into the sacred, the sensual and the decolonial. Her performance work affects sensory perceptions of the witness through a collaborative process of meaning making, underpinned by a strong feminist sensibility.

In residence at Bundanon

Nagarajan will be in residence at Bundanon with Samara Hersch and Wendy Yu working on their project Vishakanyas: Poison Maidens.

Vishakanyas: Poison Maidens is a radical feminist interpretation of the relatively unknown myth, Vishakanyas – The world’s OG femme fatales. Part choreography, part conversation, part confession – this relational work invites a reflection on female agency, desire, sensuality and sexuality for female Bharatanatyam dancers in India and the diaspora.
