4 December 2012, Kolkata, West Bengal, INDIA:  Sagara Kanyaka - The Lady From The Sea being performed at Kolkata's Science City Auditorium. It is a new collaborative work between Australia's Topology and leading South Indian theatre company Abhinaya Theatre Research Centre. Featuring cinematic projection and live music, Sagara Kanyaka is a meditative and poetic adaptation of Henrik Ibsen's The Lady from the Sea, which delves into the conflicts and confusion implicit in romantic relationships. Topology is the ensemble-in-residence at Australian cultural hub Brisbane Powerhouse, and Abhinaya Theatre Research Centre is a theatre collective in Thiruvananthapuram whose artistic director Jyothish MG was awarded the Sanskriti Pratishtan Award for theatre in 2009. The work features a new music score commission by renowned Australian composer Robert Davidson. The collaboration premiered at Brisbane Powerhouse's World Theatre Festival 2012 and is set for an international tour following Oz Fest in India.  Picture by Graham Couch/DFAT
