An award-winning international collaboration between Australian choreographer Lina Limosani and UK Bharatanatyam artist Seeta Patel, Not Today’s Yesterday blurs the lines between dance and theatre with a poetic narrative and the beauty and disquiet of a dark fairytale.

Winner of Best Dance at the 2018 Adelaide Fringe as well as a 2018 Peace Foundation Award, Not Today's Yesterday takes aim at the revisionist and airbrushed histories that have become a central point of tension across the globe. Britain and Australia, amongst others, have sordid histories and relationships with Indigenous and migrant communities and skewed histories fuel a distorted sense of nationalism. Opening up conversation through its clever appropriation of whitewashed historical narratives, Not Today's Yesterday aims to give a voice back to silenced communities.

With striking imagery, this one-woman show challenges nostalgic views of history and interrogates our ideas of equality, culture and identity, inviting audiences to see the past anew and to hope for a better future. It is a provocative, politically pertinent and engaging piece of dance theatre for all audiences.
