We are excited to perform live for this low-risk, indoor arts event following guidelines provided by the NY State Governor's Office. There is very limited seating, masks are required, and social distancing rules apply. Rovaco will present a duet performed by Nico Gonzales and Alden Henderson on each night. Ticket link below!
Rovaco was chosen for the Major Commission by Making Moves Dance Festival in 2020. As a culmination of our residency we premiered "Aaiye (Welcome)" followed by a Q&A session. Aaiye is a duet exploring Indian hospitality through contemporary dance and Nukkad Natak, a form of Indian street theater. Link to watch highlights from the work is below!
We are so thrilled to announce that Rohan Bhargava is one of Dance Magazine's 25 to Watch for 2021! Click below for a great write-up of everything Rovaco has been upto in the recent past alongside features of some other amazing artists.
Artistic Director Rohan Bhargava was awarded the prestigious Jadin Wong Fellowship by A4 as Emerging Dance Artist in 2020. This honour included a $6,000 cash grant, career coaching, and artistic mentorship from resepcted dance leaders. Read what the panelists had to say about Rohan's work by clicking below!
"In KAMA (a Sanskrit word meaning "desire, wish, longing," per the program), club culture, one night stands, BDSM, miscommunication—and, indeed, intimacy and heartbreak—are all on the table. It is everything I've come to expect from Bhargava's work: musically sensitive, impressively athletic, achingly human when it wants to be."
"My outlook on dance drastically changed when I moved from New Delhi to New York. Thinking that a career in dance was going to be easy shattered quickly during my first year at NYU's Tisch School of the Arts."
"As producers working in a recital hall that was never meant to house a project of this scale, I greatly admire Alex Chadwell and Rohan Bhargava for this seamless production. All they need is a theatre large enough to showcase their talent."
