A new, cutting-edge, contemporary Dance Theatre Company, The Delta Project invites us to explore what we choose to hide, and reveal, in their premiere dance-theatre work; Under My Skin.

Comprised of highly-trained deaf and hearing dancers, The Delta Project fuses both Auslan and spoken English into their compelling choreography. Driven by a philosophy of dance as a universal communicator, Jo Dunbar and Lina Limosani have created a powerful piece, crossing the divide between deaf and hearing cultures.

Running from the 5th to the 8th of May as a part of the 2016 Next Wave Festival, Under My Skin interweaves personal stories from the dance artists involved, exploring their interactions with the world. This mesmerising new work takes dancers and audiences alike into a new territory; one where language and experience are not common ground.

Choreographer Jo Dunbar explains, "The platform of Dance Theatre offers an exciting playground of possibilities by bringing together the artistic intelligence of new media, sound, lights, alongside a hearing and a deaf choreographer's perspectives of creating work. In this piece, dance is a universal communicator that speaks across all languages. The bringing of these artforms together provides not only access tools for the deaf dancers and audiences, but a possibility that dance theatre can be experienced in a new way."

Choreographed by Jo Dunbar (an experienced deaf dancer and choreographer who trained in the UK and has worked with a range of dance companies including Strange Fruit and Deaf Can Dance), and choreographer/dancer Lina Limosani (who has worked locally and internationally with Australian Dance Theatre Lucy Guerin, Chunky Move and Scotland's David Hughes Dance Company), Under My Skin is The Delta Project's highly anticipated premiere production and also brings together some of Melbourne's most outstanding designers: new media artist Rhian Hinkley, lighting designer Richard Vabre and sound designer Russell Goldsmith.

Comprised of deaf and hearing performers, The Delta Project is a Melbourne-based company that has been formed to explore the technical and physical manifestations of bringing two distinct worlds together. Working with visuals and sound, they create performances that are accessible for both hearing and deaf audiences.

Layered and revealing, Under My Skin challenges what it is to listen, and to be heard...
