Tukre’ (meaning pieces in Hindi) will see Raghav Handa, an Australian choreographer and dancer of Indian heritage, create a memory map of his ancestry through music and dance.

Raghav uses family heirlooms including silver glasses and a diamond necklace to evoke the traditions of his family and explore how rites of passage transcend borders. By dancing with these objects, Raghav gives the audience a chance to look at the tangibility of his family history; passing on memories and sharing a piece of history.

The movements throughout the piece are inspired in part by Raghav’s grandfathers, jewel-makers who spent their lives cutting, shaving and shining precious stones. These ‘faceting’ techniques are replicated throughout the choreography.

Competition closes 24/4/2015 at 6pm AEDST. Winners will be contacted via email/phone.
