Evolution is a revolution in dance!

Explore the cultural connection of dance through time. Evolution, a world premiere in three distinct acts, combines contemporary, classical and primal genres of music and dance.

Contemporary - Set to the techno pop music of Moby, dancers deal with the realities of modern life.

Classic - Think comedy. Think madness. Think Mozart

Primal - Dancers as wild beasts move to the music of Australian composer John Antill.

Didn't Antill also compose "Corroborree", a great hit by Ballet Australia's Beth Dean?

Gosh Mel, I have no idea ! :blushing:

You've gone and made me curious!!!

I'll find out and get back to you, but I would imagine you are correct as Stanton chose the piece.

Mel,
So sorry I haven't been on but I've been very ill with a nasty sinus infection that got into my ear and made me dizzy (er than normally I am :wub: ) and it made my face hurt so bad I wanted to cut my head off!!!! :)

Anyway, I am still among the living so here goes:

Evolution: Mozart to Moby is done in 3 sections the first of which I believe we are bringing to the Joyce the end of this month.
The first part uses roughly half the music from Moby's 1999 album, "Play".
The second piece is Eine kleine Nachtmusik.
The final section is set to John Antil's "Corroboree" from the mid-40's.

So yet again that computer you have for a brain is spot-on!!!! :grinning:

Clara :)

I know those kinds of sinus headaches - I get them myself. :)

I kind of thought it might be Corroborree - it was an epochal ballet in Australian history.
