Event Details

New works from the dance stars of today and the choreographic stars of the future For five years now, Bodytorque has presented the newest and most exciting choreographic talent in Australia, each year with a fresh theme. Bodytorque 2.2 is about partnership, those myriad pairings at the heart of dance: whether it's two dancers entwined on stage in a pas de deux, or muse and maker creating as one.

Bodytorque has evolved from a choreographic workshop to one of the high points on Australia's dance calendar. Returning with a new ballet in 2009 is Principal Artist Robert Curran, who presented acclaimed works in 2007 and 2008. He joins The Australian Ballet's Damien Welch, Remi Wörtmeyer and Kevin Jackson who recently won the Telstra Ballet Dancer Award. Also on the programme is Reed Luplau, a former artist of Sydney Dance Company. Some of these artists are stepping out as choreographers for the very first time. Settle in for an evening of invigorating dance and spot the stars of the future!

'An evening of dance like no other.' (Sydney Morning Herald), 'Very good news indeed for the future of choreography.' (The Australian)
