The Australian Ballet presents a program of works by homegrown choreographic talent. Alice Topp’s acclaimed Aurum, supported by The Joyce Theater’s Nureyev Prize, draws inspiration from the Japanese art of kintsugi—repairing cracked pottery with precious metals—and explores damage, healing, and the beauty of our flaws. The dancers’ powerful movement is framed in breathtaking stage design featuring a reflective golden floor and ripples of burnished light. The award-winning duet Unspoken Dialogues by Stephen Baynes, and a new work by Resident Choreographer Tim Harbour will round out the program.
Part of a two-week celebration of Australian dance.
Curtain Chat: Fri, May 10
