MAKING ACT V with DIMITY AZOURY | Bodytorque.Digital

Bodytorque.Digital | 13 December 2021

About the work: ACT V is inspired by the moments after a dancer steps off stage. It explores the emotional and physical shedding that occurs as dancers transition from stage, to the outside world, to home. It was choreographed by Wiradjuri man and incoming Artistic Director of Australian Dance Theatre, Daniel Riley and features Principal Artist Dimity Azoury. About Bodytorque.Digital: Bodytorque was originally conceived to uncover the creativity of The Australian Ballet’s dancers and develop their choreographic talents. This development program has been a breeding ground for our company's brightest talents including Australian legend Graeme Murphy and resident choreographers Stephen Baynes, Tim Harbour and Alice Topp. Four new works have been commissioned, designed specifically for the digital space. Bodytorque.Digital combines all elements – choreography, dancers, music, and cinematography – together through digital screens. Each work will be premiered on The Australian Ballet’s YouTube channel, with the ability to interact with audiences live.
