Genesis – Digital
Welcome To West Australian Ballet’s Premiere digital season, Genesis.
Proudly presented with Media & Communication Partner, The West Australian.
Sometimes, it’s only when we’re forced apart that we remember the power of exchange. The exchange of thoughts, passion, ideas and energy between one another. Experiencing the movements and performances that speak to something deep inside all of us, even when they’re confined to the screen of your laptop.
We want to return you to the wonder of performance. Of stepping back into a broader world, even if you can’t leave your front door. At a time when we’re all being separated from art, from music, and from each other, there’s never been a more important moment to bring the wonder of ballet into our homes. So, we’re proudly bringing Genesis to you. A series of performances crafted from the incredible passion and personal choreography of our Company Dancers, to make you feel more alive and connected to the lives and stories around us.
Genesis is unique. It’s not ballet as you would expect. Meaning ‘the spark of new creation’, it’s where dancer’s ideas and personalities burst into life. It’s an eclectic experimental season of contemporary ballet. It’s raw. It’s bare. It’s passionate. The choreography, the music, the costumes and even the lighting choices have been made by our dancers for our dancers and then filmed against the backdrop of the industrial red brick walls and exposed wooden beams of West Australian Ballet Centre’s Studio 1.
We hope you’ll join us for a truly transformative experience. A chance to dim the lights, pour a glass of something nice, and bring the magic of the outside world into your home for a little while. Maybe, if you’re not careful, you’ll feel something that you haven’t felt since the last time we were all together.
Or, maybe for the first time.
