Queensland Ballet seeks more data on its audience.

Quote

Core said the partnership complemented a wider commitment internally to build out a CRM platform. It’s also indicative of what she described as the performing arts organisation’s appetite for digital and technology-fuelled innovation.

“We talk internally about ourselves as a 60-year old startup, given our appetite for trying something new,” she said. A content-led illustration of this is Queensland Ballet’s Bespoke annual program, which pairs up new choreographers with technology, such as augmented reality and projection, to create more multi-sensory live experiences.

A review of the Mariinsky Ballet in "The Fountains of Bakhchisarai" by Oksana Khadarina for Fjord Review.

As Maria, the stunningly beautiful Anastasia Matvienko was quiet, shy, gentle and soulful; her facial expressions and her poised comportment echoed her heroine’s innocence and her good nature. These personal traits of Maria were also reflected in Matvienko’s expressive dancing: the ballerina was floating onstage with fine delicacy, her lines soft and fluid.

An interview with Francesca Hayward.

Quote

Hayward said that she has been able to take online classes with the Royal Ballet over the last few weeks but that swapping the company’s huge studio for her own living room has meant that it is hard to perform at the same level and maintain her usual fitness. She installed her own barre at home and has a Harlequin dancefloor square: “It has been a massive help to have those two pieces of equipment.” She said that it can be daunting for dancers to return to performing on stage in front of an audience and that “it will take time to get back into the shape that allows us to work at our maximum”. However, she pointed out that this period of rest can also be beneficial to dancers. “You very rarely get anything more than a few weeks off at a time as a dancer, so to have an extended period is incredibly valuable for longevity.”
