REINCARNATION, AIR AND OTHER INVISIBLE FORCES and GALATEA AND PYGMALION

REINCARNATION

Joining forces with the State’s premier contemporary dance company, Co:3 Australia, we present a bold and explosive work. In a context where hybridity and fusion are vogue, it stands testament to the distinct and authentic heritages of contemporary and classical form. This work explores the notion of death and transformation from classical ballet narratives such as Giselle and Swan Lake.

AIR AND OTHER INVISIBLE FORCES

A full length, dramatic and powerful work by Graeme Murphy, one of Australia’s greatest choreographers. Journeys with unknown endings, gods who dwell in the everyday, doors that open onto nothingness, chance encounters that change everything and consequently everything before… these are the intangibles that propel this incredible work.

GALATEA AND PYGMALION

A breathtaking love story inspired by the myth of sculpture-master Pygmalion who asks Aphrodite to breathe life into his sculpture, Galatea, with whom he has fallen in love. This neo-classical work is filled with beautiful, silky fluid movements that will leave you spellbound.
