Presented by West Australian Ballet ·

Dance with a difference is heading to the Quarry Amphitheatre as West Australian Ballet presents three exciting new works under the summer night sky.

Acclaimed choreographer Garry Stewart joins forces with WAB and one of Australia’s newest contemporary dance companies Co3 Australia to explore themes of death and transformation set against brooding backdrops of nature – a bewitching forest, a foreboding lake, an ominous moon. A visually dazzling work embodying ritualistic and other-worldly tones Reincarnation evokes an alternate universe where metamorphosing bodies pass through a cathartic journey of resurrection and renewal.

Experience In-Synch, an improvised dance work accompanied by world- renowned vocalist, beat-boxer and looper MB14. Aurélien Scannella and Sandy Delasalle, alongside Sydney Dance Company and former WAB dancer David Mack, create a frame of movement for the dancers who each night improvise in response to MB14’s pulsing live melodies.

Being constantly under surveillance … What kind of emotions does this stir in a person? In X-It dancers move between the stage and synchronised worlds borne from video projections. The choreography is built on the foundations of the study of emotions and shifting power balances within human relationships.

Order your picnic hamper and settle in for a night of dance and dining under the stars.

Presented by the West Australian Ballet in association with Perth Festival and supporting partners Bankwest & EY
