From 7–23 December, Lina Limosani and the collaborating team will be in the studio exploring Act 1 of the double bill ‘What Lies Within’. This work takes as its launch point qualities of power, leadership and exploitation within cult-like mentality and grooming. It is a daring and dark tale that addresses a timeless set of questions about human nature, ideology and our desperate need to be apart of something bigger than ourselves. It is a powerful study of demagoguery, ethical distortions and victimization.

2015 Australian Society for Performing Arts Healthcare annual conference

Key information

The Australian Society for Performing Arts Healthcare (ASPAH) recognises that all performing artists, young and old, amateur and professional, have unique needs that may not be met by standard models of healthcare.

The 2015 conference theme is 'A Career in the Spotlight: Enhancing Performance Health and Wellbeing'.

This year’s theme will inspire attendees to consider the health and well-being of the whole artist through evidence-informed practice, whether this is in the private teaching studio or the rooms of a healthcare professional.

Keynote speakers include international and national experts in performing arts healthcare: Dr Kate Hays, Associate Professor Rae de Lisle and Dr Cate Madill.

Researchers and clinicians in the fields of dance, drama, voice and music health will present their latest research and discuss possible strategies to overcome the health challenges associated with being a performing artist.

There will also be themed workshops about dance, music, voice and performing arts medicine research.
