Volt Dress Rehearsal
Thursday 2 April | 1pm + 7pm
Sydney Opera House

Modern dance at the speed of light!

Is it possible to understand the dormant demons within us? How do people connect through extreme emotion? Alice Topp and Wayne McGregor return to our stages this season with Volt, an intense exploration of the human condition. Within Volt, Topp premieres her new piece Logos, which physically embodies the struggles of demons and fears with the human mind, while we explore two pieces from McGregor, Britain’s leading light in modern dance.

As the first female resident choreographer of the Australian Ballet and recent 2019 Helpmann Award winner for her piece, Aurum, Topp is set to change the future landscape of Australian dance.

Showing alongside Topp’s works is McGregor’s brilliantly raw experimentation with the human body in his works Chroma and Dyad 1929. The performances stand at the edge of technological and artistic innovation, promising to shake convention to the core.
