From its earliest days, The Australian Ballet has showcased aspiring choreographers, nurturing the breeding ground of ballet, and in the last decade, they have revived the tradition with their ever-popular Bodytorque season.
The Bodytorque season aims to showcase works by emerging talents and this June, the Bodytorque season makes its Melbourne debut.
Playing at the Arts Centre Melbourne, State Theatre for a strictly limited season, this upcoming series of performances sees budding choreographers inspired by DNA; the mysterious and ubiquitous, secretive, powerful, and elegant molecule that is at the centre of all life on this planet.
Complementing these innovative works will be a special preview of the development phase of Corpus Callosum by Richard Cilli (Sydney Dance Company), which won the 50th Anniversary Ballet Project. In this brand-new production, Richard is inspired by the very structure of the human brain, which pits force of reason against the power of creativity.
