Not Today’s Yesterday. ‘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 and theatre to create a poetic narrative that has the beauty and disquiet of a Grimm’s fairytale. 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’.
