Tantri and Tantra are twins born under the full moon. Inseparable in life, the line between reality and the dreamworld begins to blur as one life ebbs away and the other must begin anew.

Directed by the award-winning Andini, this dance and theatre production is a unique collaboration with Indonesian choreographer Ida Ayu Wayan Satyani and Australian theatremakers Adena Jacobs, Eugyeene Teh and Jenny Hector.

On the Australian stage for the first time, a cast of extraordinary child performers from Bali’s Komunitas Bumi Bajra bring a captivating honesty and playful energy to profound meditations on life, grief and hope.
