Australian Choreographer Lina Limosani and Scottish physical theatre director Al Seed plunge audiences into the story of the Fates of Greek mythology. Virtuoso Australian dancers Tara Jade Samaya and Kialea-Nadine Williams join Limosani on stage to play the three Fates who spin, measure and cut the thread of life, creating an emotionally charged dance-theatre performance which weaves together themes of mortality, freewill and sisterhood.Through stunning imagery, an immersive original score, dance and visual theatre, this work is a fiercely dynamic piece, delivered with relentless intensity and athleticism in an exhilarating journey into myth and imagination.
Once upon a time… in a faraway land… it happened… did not happen… could have happened. History is passed on like stories from generation to generation. But what if the stories are not what they seem?
This award winning work is an International collaboration between UK award-winning Bharatanatyam artist Seeta Patel and Australian choreographer Lina Limosani. This work blends techniques from Bharatanatyam, contemporary dance & theatre to create a poetic narrative that has the beauty & disquiet of a Grimm’s fairy-tale. It is a one-woman show which subversively co-opts whitewashing against itself.
Not Today's Yesterday took home the Graham Smith Peace Foundation Award and the Bank SA Best in Dance Award at the 2018 Adelaide Fringe.
A Delicate Situation is a cross-cultural collaboration between Australia and Asia, exploring the universal subject matter of dying, death and what lies beyond. Drawing on the power of mythology and our ongoing interest in the supernatural, it is the story of a woman’s struggle to come to terms with death whilst surrounded by folklore, myth and superstition. Utilizing the recurring image from many Asian cultures through the idioms of dance, puppetry and theatre this work demonstrates the omnipresence of death and death lore across cultures.
A Delicate Situation was nominated for

- Outstanding Achievement in Independent Dance; Australian Dance Awards 2015
