About this event

'Who controls the past controls the future. Who controls the present controls the past'. George Orwell

Not Today's Yesterday 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.

Once upon a time.. in a faraway land.. it happened.. did not happen.. could have happened.

Supported by Chats Palace, Arts Council England, Country Arts SA, Arts SA, The Place London, Adelaide Fringe Artists Fund, LWD Dance Hub, British Council, The Bench UK and NA POMORSKIEJ Artist residency
