Milnjiya: Milky Way - River of Stars

A breath-taking feast for the soul. This ground-breaking collaboration between Gary Lang NT Dance Company, WAB and Opera Artist Deborah Cheetham AO, brings together two Indigenous nations, the Larrakia and Yorta-Yorta, ballet and opera as Gary Lang re-tells his mother’s Yolngu Milky Way creation story, featuring dancers from both companies and traditional cultural artists from Yirrkala.

Les Indomptes
Claude Brumachon presents a ‘dual flight’ full of energy, seeking something to ‘let go of ’ – to find the desire in a body offered, letting the vocalism of movement vibrate. The dancers tear themselves away, run and fly, wild and savage, re-discovering their first animal instincts then repel themselves, finding the ecstasy in the moment.

Ghost Gum
Following his beautiful work, The Clearest Light, presented at Ballet at the Quarry 2017, WAB’s own Demi-Soloist Christopher Hill will enchant audiences once again, with the premiere of a gorgeous duet for two women which explores the relationship between earth and water… would one survive without the other?

Paradise Within
Known for his fluid contemporary choreography, French choreographer, Patrick Delcroix joins WAB for the first time.

Why such sadness on faces in the street, in the shops, the train, on the beach boulevard...? For sure, we are all experiencing the stresses life brings our way; but not all of us come from a country at war or ruled under a dictatorship; nor from an island devastated by the anger of weather or losing a loved one. The happiness is in us now. Open your eyes, breath his air, moisten yourself with his smell... If you only have the chance to enjoy it after your final trip, no one will ever know.
