The Australian Ballet Presents Verve
Verve is a showcase of the depth of The Australian Ballet’s choreography and dance talent; it will thrill, engross and mesmerise.
The program is made up of performances by three very different dancemakers.
Choreographer Tim Harbour’s Filigree and Shadow flirts with the cutting edge of contemporary ballet. The performance pulses with powerful moves inspired by aggression, which are set against a sleek architect-designed set. Its score – by German duo 48nord – propels this work to its explosive climax.
Stephen Baynes’s Constant Variants is neo-classical ballet at its most hypnotic. It features pristine technique set to a Tchaikovsky score with solo cello. This is an atmospheric piece of dance that will beguile.
Alice Topp has made music-video choreography for Megan Washington and Ben Folds and for Verve will premiere a brand-new work that will continue her exploration into intricate partnering and intense emotion.
