From the vast expanses of Central Australia, Fan Fatale presents ‘Where From Here?’
Fuelled by the energy of theatrical fan dance, this show weaves together live and filmed performances with a compelling poetic narration. It’s a reflective and bold exploration of our relationship to that which sustains us and asks: how do we evolve towards the future where the climate is changing?
The filmed pieces feature the ancient landscapes of the central desert. The spoken word provides stepping stones of questions, themes, reflections, fears and hopes. The fan dancing combines the joyous and the surreal, the fierce and the tender, the sublime and the satirical. It’s bold, big-hearted and body positive as it fronts up to the big questions with a belief that art with this energy can ignite inspiration.
‘Where From Here?’ is presented by Fan Fatale, a courageous collaboration between eclectic Alice Springs artists, All Things Peachy and Rosie Wild.
For this duo, fan dance is not about beauty as a commodity to exploit: instead, we celebrate beauty as something we create through connection, courage, vulnerability and not taking ourselves too seriously.

Fan Fatale explores connection, strength, vulnerability and the surreal through theatrical fan dance. Follow your passions, make art but also make a difference. Fan Fatale comments on the complexities of life in the modern world. They marry beauty with challenging moments, and often play the role of the court jester, reflecting back issues through the surprising, dynamic and often beautiful device of feather fans.
Fan Fatale is All Things Peachy (Nicole Pietsch) – a seasoned musical performer, artist, events organiser – and Rosie Wild – a trained theatre practitioner, musician and performance artist.
