This season will showcase an exciting triple bill of neo-classical dance, including Jacqui Carroll's "The four seasons", Harold Collins', M.B.E, "You bright and shining angels" (a tribute to K) and a new contemporary work, "The host", by Natalie Weir.
The four seasons, set to Vivaldi's famous score is a humorous and delightful exploration in dance of the Australian four seasons - from the backyard bar-b-que through to the action of the rugby field. Warwick Adeney, award winning violinist and Concertmaster for the Queensland Philharmonic Orchestra will be the Guest violinist for the season.
You bright and shining angels is the third work in a trilogy about dancers and dancing. This classical ballet set to the music of Schubert will entice and enthral audiences.
The Host is an exciting contemporary dance piece set around the seemingly cordial surrounds of the dinner table. The host and seductive hostess manipulate the table of indulgent, greedy and obsessive characters as the balance of power shifts and confrontation erupts. This new dramatic work is set to the music of Schnittke.
The diverse music for this season will be performed by the Queensland Philharmonic Orchestra under the batons of Guest Conductors Graeme Young and Warwick Adeney.
