Dinesh Allirajah

Short biography
Dinesh Angelo Allirajah (6.05.1967-9.12.2014) described his writing as “narratives of the unnoticed moment”, giving airplay to what happens “on the edge of the crowd”, where characters have to suddenly reassess who and what they are. He worked tirelessly as a believer in the liberating and educating power of the arts. The loss of his voice humorous, witty and deeply moving leaves a silence. He is survived by his mother, Evelyn, and older brother Duleep, his fiancée Vic, two sons Bruno and Rufus, and their mother, his ex-partner Jo.
