Five strangers.
One train.
Four stops.
One destination.

Mike, a father and husband with cancer, is ready to move on.

Liz is the sole carer of her severely disabled grandson. She’s coming to terms with things.

Rachael, a young woman of twenty, is lost and beyond help.

Jake is your typical golden-haired boy on the cusp of manhood. He’s made a big mistake.

Toby, his best friend, has said nothing the whole ride.

Some chose to be here.
Others didn’t.
All have the choice to move on.
Only one can ride to the end and claim their second chance.
So, who stays and who goes?

Four minutes is a short time for some, but an eternity for others.
Any longer becomes deadly in the liminal space between.

LIMINAL dissects not only on the joys and shortcomings of life, and the torturous relief of death, but what happens in between.


This play deals with topics of grief, loss, terminal illness, and suicide. We strive to deal with such topics compassionately and with care, however if you have any questions, please feel free to ask.

2023 WOMADelaide invitees BANDALUZIA, Led by ARIA nominated Flamenco guitarist, will present a spectacular new show that showcases contemporary flamenco dance and music whilst displaying the essential characteristics of the flamenco tradition.

BANDALUZIA are celebrated for their powerful performances, unique sound and explosive displays of dazzling musicianship and virtuosity. Bandaluzia performed at The Adelaide International Guitar Festival curated by Slava Grigoryan and was awarded “The Pick Of the Sydney Fringe” at The Sydney Fringe Festival. Bandaluzia performed to a sold out Sydney Opera House Concert Hall as an invited artist to TEDX Sydney. Damian recently released his debut album “Shifting Sands” (ABC Music) which was The Sydney Morning Heralds ‘Album of the week’ where it was described as “Glorious guitar playing”. Damian was invited to perform as a solo artist at The Rajasthan International Folk Festival, INDIA and in has performed at The Shanghai International Fringe Festival, CHINA. Bandaluzia also features Dance Australia Magazine’s “Most Outstanding Dancer” and co- winner of “Best Dance Show” at The Adelaide Fringe JESSICA STATHAM (flamenco dance), ROSALIE COCCHIARO (flamenco dance) who, living in Madrid for 10 years, has performed in many of Madrid’s most premier Tablaos (flamenco venues) & outstanding percussionist JAMES HAUPTMANN (James Morrison, Vince Jones, Bluejuice). Bandaluzia are also highly revered for their ability to mix elements of other genres into their performances, whether being the rich harmonies of Jazz, the exotic melodies of the Orient or the infectious rhythms of South America. An experience that ignites the senses with the grace of Flamenco.

“Bandaluzia is winning high praise for its unique Australian interpretation of the powerful music and dance form….with their thrilling blend of passion and virtuosity” Gabrielle Wilder, Sydney Morning Herald

“The perennially popular Bandaluzia is firmly established as one of the most enjoyable and exciting exponents of modern flamenco…Their 2020 fringe show sees them at the top of their games….A virtuoso display, rapturously received.” 5 stars. Peter Burden, The Advertiser, Adelaide.

ALBUM OF THE WEEK “The music’s flamenco core never wavers. Damian Wright’s glorious guitar playing is the spine, if you will, while his compositions allow other instruments to sing their own songs, like willowy limbs able to dance independently because of the spine’s solidity… a fine addition to Wright’s impressive catalogue.” John Shand, Sydney Morning Herald

“Damian Wright is a brilliant flamenco guitarist…Wright showed what a captivating solo player he is on his own “In Time”, and elsewhere his articulation of complex lines was fluid and dripping with conviction” – John Shand, Sydney Morning Herald.

‘Hobart, I love you’ is a Hobart-only play with three captivating love stories performed by six gifted actors from an award-winning multicultural theatre group.

The director and actor, Fini Liu received the Best Direction Nomination’ by Greenroom Australia for ‘Juleo and Romiet’ presented as part of Melbourne Fringe Festival 2022; the ‘Best Work by an Emerging Artist’ in Melbourne Fringe Festival 2022’ for ‘Juleo and Romiet’, and the Anywhere Festival Award Overall in Anywhere Festival 2022 for ‘Last Laugh’.

‘Hobart, I love you’ is a semi-original theatre work, adapted from three classical love stories.

These three love stories will take place in contemporary Hobart, exploring love, freedom, growth and loneliness.

This play invites the audience to experience contemporary Hobart through the lens of multicultural communities.

Story 1: They go through the cycles of seeking, encountering,  arguing, reconciling, and separating, repeatedly oscillating between avoiding and confronting, choosing and giving up, desires and realities, ultimately falling into and breaking free from the shackles of human nature. 
Actors: Fini Liu and Bihan Zhou

Story 2: They become attracted to each other, like butterflies fluttering freely in a sunlit meadow, their spirits entwined, embracing a love that grants them the freedom to soar to unimaginable heights. 
Actors: Yuyang Peng and Sally Chen

Story 3: They sit side by side at tables and read the notes, letters and cards – in which over nearly 50 years, they discuss their hopes and ambitions, dreams and disappointments, victories and defeats. 
Actors: Amy Wang and Hanwen Zhang

It’s cold outside! Come here and get some love!

** This play will be performed in a combination of English and Mandarin. English subtitles will be provided.
