IN-SYNCH: BALLET AT THE QUARRY
Co:3 Australia proudly presented Reincarnation by Garry Stewart, in collaboration with West Australian Ballet. In a context where hybridity and fusion are vogue, Reincarnation stands as a testament to the distinct heritages of contemporary and classical form. Garry Stewart’s work explores the notion of death and transformation in classical ballet narratives such as Giselle and Swan Lake. With contemporary and ballet dancers appearing on stage together, Reincarnation is a unique collaboration.
Garry Stewart is the Artistic Director at Australian Dance Theatre. He has been creating choreographic works since 1990. Most of Stewart’s works have been co-funded and co-produced by a number of leading international theatres. His works have been seen by audiences totalling tens of thousands the world over. Award-winning and highly praised.
West Australian Ballet’s In-Synch: Ballet at the Quarry, a series of four short works, is proudly presented by Bankwest and Ernst & Young in association with Perth Festival. Reincarnation is supported by the Australian Government through the Major Collaboration Fund, Australia Council, its arts funding and advisory body.
Under the magical night sky surrounded by the magnificent City Beach Quarry Amphitheatre, be enthralled by the unique combination of contemporary dance and dining under a canopy of stars. Part of Perth Festival, Ballet at the Quarry is one of the summer’s hottest tickets.
