Kurinji is S. Shakthidharan and Aimée Falzon.

We make music, theatre, film and more.

The company provides the services of both artists across all their creative works. For some projects it also produces and presents their work.

Our stories are epic, intimate and communal.

Our productions are multi-sensory and immerse our audiences into other worlds.

Our process is collaborative, and our work is made through respectful collaboration with real people, in real places.

Our home is western Sydney, Australia. The land of the Wangal clan of the Dharug Nation.

“S. Shakthidharan’s ear for dialogue is very good: almost every single line feels well-judged, and never ignores the so-human reality of happiness, trauma, and other emotions occurring simultaneously.”
– Cassie Tongue, Time Out
Counting and Cracking, Sydney Festival 2019

“It began with a lone voice. Aimée Falzon, seated at her keyboard, gradually looped her voice into an
impressive one-woman symphony.”
– Scott Wallace, Sydney Scoop
Rizzy’s 18th Birthday Party, CarriageWorks 2014

“Visually it is a feast as the films are cinematically beautiful. The score, performed live at the launch, was exceptional.”
– Emily Shaddick, Australian Stage
