Kunstkamer

April 28 @ 7:00 pm - 10:00 pm

$46 – $125

Never before has The Australian Ballet presented contemporary dance of this scale and ambition.

Commissioned for the 60th anniversary of Nederlands Dans Theater, the world’s most celebrated contemporary company, Kunstkamer is the joint creation of four choreographers: frequent collaborators Paul Lightfoot and Sol León; Marco Goecke; and the Canadian prodigy Crystal Pite.

Inspired by the 18th-century cabinet of curiosities, this work draws together diverse elements – stark movement, song, film, spoken word – into an eclectic and fascinating whole, bound together by recurring motifs and characters and featuring music by a vast array of composers from Beethoven to Bach to Britten, Janis Joplin to Joby Talbot.

The choreography, moving from the intimacy and humour of solos and pas de deux to intricate waves of ensemble movement, references dance theatre traditions while exploring new frontiers of expression.

Like a modern museum curated with wit and incisive intelligence, Kunstkamer invites you to wonder at the endless possibilities of art.

The final dress rehearsal for Kunstkamer will be on Thursday 28 April, 7pm at Sydney Opera House.

Tickets for the final dress rehearsal of The Australian Ballet’s Kunstkamer, are on sale Tuesday 11am 8 March!
