"Add to the principal cast, a team of Physical Theatre artists: two actors, who also move brilliantly:
Lia Reutens and Troy Honeysett." - Kevin Jackson


" Ms Mak and Reutens work like the proverbial 'trojans', to quite provocative and comic rewards with a vast array of spectacular costume changes and characters - none more so than the sexy-spangly black leotarded Spider Spirits."
 - Kevin Jackson

"Lia Reutens brings character, life and panache to these (literally) larger-than-life creatures" - Glenn Saunders 

"Lia Reutens and Ivy Mak delight with their deliciously mischievous roles as diverse demons" - Peter Wilkins

Hanging by a Thread

I was so proud to be asked by Sydney International Brass Festival director, Steve Rosse and his marketing manager, Heather Davies to be the poster girl for their 2014 Festival. Little did I know that the wonderful pictures by Nyk Sykes would inspire international composer, Jim Stephenson to compose a brand new piece.

Sneak peak inside the workshop of Paul Fraser, creating the exciting Water Dragon puppet from the designs of Kim Carpenter. 
I'm very much looking forward to working with this beast on stage of "Monkey: Journey to the West"


Monkey: Journey to the West 2014

I'm leaping into the New Year and jumping back onstage in this new large-scale production!

Based on China's popular classic story of "The Monkey King" and remembered by generations of Australians from the 70's cult TV show "Monkey Magic", this highly physical production combines Asian-Australian actors in comedy, music, song and spectacular martial arts.

Directed by John Bell (Bell Shakespeare) and created by Kim Carpenter (Theatre of Image), this production will tour to Brisbane, Sydney and Melbourne.

The Superfluous Gents include: Mr. A Stevenson & Mr. D West... and their Lady Luck, Miss Lia REUTENS!!
Thrills n spills, Twists n Turns were captured by the nimble trigger finger of MIDFLIP

"TOP GIRLS"

Posted by Lia Reutens on April 18, 2012 at 7:45 PM Comments comments (4)

Very excited and thrilled to announce that I will be performing in "Top Girls" with SA State Theatre Company.

Directed by Catherine Fitzgerald, "Top Girls" is set in Margaret Thatcher's England in the early 1980s, where power dressing and giant shoulder pads were all the fashion. Caryl Churchill's stark and unflinching portrayal of the sacrifices women make to get to the top is still stingingly relevant.



Sadako and the Thousand Paper Cranes

This wonderful story, adapted for stage and produced by Canute Productions is touring once again.
I first performed the role of Chizuko in 2009 and look forward to being reunited with a stellar cast:
Monica Sayers, Shingo Usami, Valerie Berry and Li-Leng Au

We will be on Tour in NSW & QLD.
