After a wildly successful run at Melbourne's State Theatre, the work of three world class choreographers from disparate corners of the world will come together in Sydney for an electric triple bill. With just under a dozen engagements at the Opera House's Joan Sutherland Theatre, The Australian Ballet presents Vitesse, a stirring celebration of movement and sound.
The performance begins with Christopher Wheeldon's DGVc: Danse à Grande Vitesse, a lightning-fast work set to music by Michael Nyman, which was composed for the inauguration of the TGV bullet train in France. Second up is Jiri Kylian's Forgotten Land, a fluid number that the Arts Centre program describes as "like an Edvard Munch painting come to life". The show will conclude with William Forsythe's In the Middle, Somewhat Elevated, a groundbreaking work widely celebrated for pushing the limits of ballet technique.
