With new work from Susan Hawkins (Australia - resident composer of Collusion Music).

The ensemble formed in 2002, and tours nationally each year. Alongside ex-Queensland Ballet star and now Collusion's resident choreographer Gareth Belling, resident composer Susan Hawkins and three incredible dancers, the group premiered their first chamber ballet Transient Beauty at Restrung Festival in 2012. This evocative chamber ballet spoke loudly and powerfully to enraptured audiences and met with critical acclaim.

The group released two CDs in 2012- Flashpoint and I read the dream slowly and currently working on two new CDs, one being the soundtrack for the successful Transient Beauty.

Supported as an Ensemble in Residence at Griffith University Queensland Conservatorium, the Queensland Government announced that it will be supporting the group in 2014.

Collusion Music will be performing The Soundtrack to Desirelines at the Qld Conservatorium of Music on 26 March 2014 at 6:30pm. Tickets are available from QTIX.

"A desire line can be a path created as a consequence of foot or bicycle traffic. The path usually represents the shortest or most easily navigated route between an origin and destination. The width of the path and its erosion are indicators of the amount of use the path receives. Desire lines emerge as shortcuts where constructed ways take a circuitous route, or have gaps, or are lacking entirely."
