To rectify this, choreographer Tim Harbour who has known Kevin since his corps days has created What Remains, a powerful contemporary piece for our 2023 Bodytorque Digital program that pays tribute to the incredible artistry and legacy of Kevin’s work.
Audience favourite, Kevin Jackson performs Tim Harbour’s extraordinary work What Remains in a long overdue farewell performance.
16 Feb 2023
Kevin Jackson has been an integral part of The Australian Ballet family since joining in 2003 as a member of the corps de ballet before being promoted to Principal Artist in 2010. When he made the difficult decision to retire in 2021, Kevin was unable to dance his final performance due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
Created specifically for digital screen, this long overdue farewell performance is a collaboration between friends that examines what remains when a dancer stops performing.
“It is human to dance.” — Kevin Jackson
“In What Remains, I see Kev showing us what will remain a part of him - an artist of sensitivity and power; a dancer who’s all heart.” — Tim Harbour
