ICONS – The Australian Ballet
Sir Robert Helpmann’s first work on the fledgling Australian
Ballet. The Display slyly relates the mating rituals of lyrebirds to
the behaviour of men fighting over a woman at an Aussie picnic.
Gemini, created on The Australian Ballet in 1973, is a blazingly
original work by Glen Tetley that still looks contemporary today.
This ballet stretches its dancers to the limit.
Graeme Murphy’s Beyond Twelve, commissioned by Artistic
Director Marilyn Jones in 1980, is a moving look at a dancer’s
life, from larky, football-mad boyhood to young love and early success through to a hard-earnt, lonely maturity.
