bodytorque: atelier

Our choreographic workshops have been a breeding ground for the brightest talents since the company’s earliest days. Australian legend Graeme Murphy, our resident choreographers Stephen Baynes and Tim Harbour, and rising star Alice Topp all started by creating world-premieres for the Bodytorque program.

This October, bodytorque: atelier gives you the chance to see creativity unfolding in an intimate workshop-style setting as company dancers and, for the first time, four external creatives present new choreographic works accompanied by the stellar musicians from Orchestra Victoria.

Be the first to see the stars of the next generation and glimpse the future of movement.
