'...One’s Wicked Ways is funny and serious and highly engaging, Limosani’s deft timing and acute sense of theatre making it clear why she was awarded the 2015 Ausdance Peggy van Praagh Choreographic Fellowship.'
MAGGIE TONKIN - DANCE AUSTRALIA
One's Wicked Ways was a commission by Australian Dance Theatre, for their Ignition season of 'History'. Premiering at AC Arts Main theatre, Adelaide, July 2016, the work utilises humor and an almost obscene and absurd bravado - danced and embodied - to represent and scrutinise 'high societies' and their indulgent nature; a reflection on our propensity toward perverse pleasures and gluttony. It is wickedly entertaining, humorous, discomfiting and ultimately provocative.
Set in a historic period, the work questions the human condition and its inherent behaviours. The consequences of history form the foundation of our daily life, yet are we actually learning from the innumerable signposts from our past?
'...This was one of several delightful comic sequences which had the audience laughing at the antics of the dancers – an uncommon occurrence with most contemporary dance.'
JOHN DALY - PEOPLES NBR WEEKEND REVIEW
Whispers from Pandora’s Box was a commission for the New Zealand Dance Company's 'The Absurdity of Humanity' season. Premiering at the Q Theatre, Auckland in August 2016, the work was a theatrical exposition on the dichotomy of good and evil within human nature. With a score created from mashed up film soundtracks and absurdist scores, this black comedy contains Elizabethan-period inspired costumes, David Lynch style elements, and shockingly timed fight sequences. This work promises to present both the macabre and humorous. Kill Bill meets Elizabeth I in this romp of surreal and action-packed pandemonium.
