Raghav Handa

Art Forms: Choreography, Dance, Performance

Residency Year: 2019

Lives / Works: Australia

Raghav Handa is an Australian choreographer and performer of Indian heritage with training in modern and Indigenous contemporary dance.

At Bundanon, Handa and Sue Healey (choreographer, film-maker and installation artist) worked with Reneta Commisso (dancer), Richard Paul Harvey AM FRS (molecular biologist), Anca Frankenhaeuser (deviser/director/choreographer/performer/ teacher) and Patrick Harding-Irmer (dancer) on a collaborative installation investigating light, film and choreography, exploring the movement of two and three dimensional bodies.

Handa was also in residence in 2018 working with Julie-Ann Long. This residency enabled director, Julie-Anne Long, and collaborators: Sam James; Glenn Thompson; Ekrem Eli Phoenix, to focus on film installation: ‘TROUBLE: A Place In Time’. It also provided an opportunity for Martin del Amo, Justine Shi Pearson, Rhiannon Newton and Raghav Handa to curate a public participatory performance event, Project Workspace. Both developments were part of a larger project, ‘Dance in the City’ that engages with an inclusive gathering of artists from the Sydney independent dance sector, supporting a diversity of dance work to make visible the practices of this dance community.


Bundanon acknowledges the people of the Dharawal and Dhurga language groups as the traditional owners of the land within our boundaries, and recognises their continuous connection to culture, community and Country.

In Dharawal the word Bundanon means deep valley.
