Lina Limosani has joined forces with renowned Adelaide visual artist Thom Buchanan and sound designer Sean Williams to weave dance, sound and visual art/design explorations into a highly visceral and poetic stage production that maps a creative voyage through the ambiguous and inescapable relationship between civilisation and barbarism.
'What Lurks on the Edge' is an ambitious contemporary dance and magic collaboration between South Australian choreographer Lina Limosani and Melbourne Magician & Producer Elio Simonetti. It is a highly visual, audacious contemporary dance work that draws upon Charles Perrault’s 17th-century horror-folktale Blue Beard. Utilizing dance, stage magic, object theatre, and kinetic costuming, this stage production is a retelling of the original story that privileges women. It is a reimagining of myth and archetype through the heroine’s journey.
