The AgeFlowing sensuous movement infused with a strong ensemble sensibility
HERALD SUNPage’s ballet was immediately captivating and seamlessly traced the passage of one night in a desert landscape, from evening star to morning star.
ArtsHubThe Bangarra dancers performed with their usual, beautifully rehearsed ensemble work with striking performances from Elma Kris and Waangenga Blanco representing Full Moon.
In celebration of The Australian Ballet’s 50th anniversary, Stephen Page leads a collaboration between Bangarra and The Australian Ballet with the creation of his new work Warumuk – in the dark night as part of the Ballet’s Infinity program. While past works Alchemy (1996) and Rites (1997) fused ballet with Indigenous themes, this is the first time the two companies have been immersed in the creation of a contemporary Indigenous cultural experience.
Dancers from both companies will join together in a seamless creative process inspired by Aboriginal culture. From the evening star to the morning star, the myths that resonate within the night sky will be expressed from a contemporary perspective.
A commissioned score by multi-talented composer David Page provides a rich mix of soundscape and orchestral instruments celebrating the resilience of Aboriginal songs and languages.
