The Lady from the Sea is a production borne from a collaboration between Topology (a contemporary musical group from Brisbane) and the Abhinaya Theatre Research Centre of Thiruvananthapuram (India).

It is based on a play by Ibsen, in which an unhappily married woman, inwardly obsessed with thoughts of the ocean, is confronted by a long-lost lover who tells her she must choose: to sail away with him or never see him again.

Ibsen’s play explores themes such as individual happiness and social convention, but the story also carries more ancient echoes.
