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.
