It was first developed during Lina’s Asialink residency at Rimbun Dahan in 2008, and was aso redeveloped with a short residency funded by Arts SA in 2012. Lina initially worked with four Malaysian dancers to create the version of A Delicate Situation which was performed at Kuala Lumpur Performing Arts Centre, 12-14 December 2008.

- Best Costume Design for Dance — Eve Lambert
In the darkness, things are waiting. Their past is sorrow, their
future is pain, and their hunger cannot be satisfied.
In an empty house, a cold room, they cling tenaciously to the walls.
Are her fears normal, or is her imagination running away with her? Is
he a prisoner or merely insane?
