Australian audiences will be treated to the world premiere of Alice Topp’s newest work, Logos, showing alongside two of Wayne McGregor’s boundary breaking productions, Chroma and Dyad 1929. Together, the works form three-part ballet Volt.
But this isn’t ballet as you know it. Expect choreography set to the soundtrack of the White Stripes as well as a Pulitzer Prize-winning score by American composer and minimalist pioneer Steve Reich, performed by Orchestra Victoria.
Topp’s Logos elegantly explores how humans coexist with the monsters within them, while Chroma is a pop ballet that unfolds as a beautiful whirlwind of colour, movement and sound. In Dyad 1929 expresses McGregor maps movement as a new kind of language.
McGregor has previously collaborated with Radiohead and on the Harry Potter franchise, while Topp has dreamt up new work for the likes of Megan Washington and Ben Folds.
