Not Today's Yesterday (SOUTH AUSTRALIA, Australia)
1 Jan 2019 - 31 Dec 2021
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.
