We are thrilled to announce that our first work will be a TRIPLE BILL. An amalgamation of three works supported by Australia's leading choreographers, composers, musicians and costume designers.
"Au Revoir mon ami" is a newly composed and choreographed piece of work composed by Cyrus Meurant and choreographed in sections by Brett Morgan OAM, Timothy Gordon, Debbie Ellis Linnert and Jake Burden. With the haunting and emotional performance of the grand piano and violin, this piece will take you on an emotional journey, allowing the audience members to be swopt away into their own imagination.
"Banged and Tap" from "Synergy with Synergy" is described as "A concerto for man, muscle and machine, Synergy with Synergy is an extraordinarily unique and exciting piece of dance. Inspired by the diversity and power of percussion".
Created by the renowned choreographer Graeme Murphy AM and renowned percussionist Michael Askill. First performed by Sydney Dance Company, 30 years ago, the National Youth Ballet Company under the Artistic Directorship of Brett Morgan OAM and guidance of Graeme Murphy and Janet Vernon, will be recreating the essence of this world acclaimed piece of work. Musical Director, Michael Askill and with his graduation student will complete the live component of this work.
"Berlin Songs" is a recreation of 5 songs, performed by the eclectic and entertaining performer iOTA from the original work of Graeme Murphy’s "BERLIN".
"BERLIN" is an exploration using the city of Berlin as a symbol of decline and resurrection. Seductively theatrical, BERLIN explores the heart and mind of what it is to be human.
A hauntingly powerful and beautiful piece of dance that was first created in 1995 with music by Iva Davies and Icehouse, then re-staged in 2007 with iOTA as the singer/hero"
This piece is evocative, fluid and ahead of its time with the audience member being able to relate to so many similarities of today.
Murphy's words are timeless, vibrant, thrilling and energetic and will bring audiences to the edge of their seats.
