Australian Dance Theatre
‘Outside Within’ Opens in 3 Weeks
A bold new triptych of ideas, stories and legacies by Daniel Riley and Adrianne Semmens.
Daniel’s first work for Australian Dance Company – The Third – takes as its starting point his short film mulunma – Inside Within, which explores the relationship between the Western archive and a First Nations archive, each built on differing ideologies.
The Third extends these concepts by looking at the body as an archive and how we hold memories personally and collectively.
Adrianne’s Immerse dives into the lineage of our waterways and our ancestral connection to fresh and saltwater, speaking to the duality that springs from Adrianne’s connection to freshwater as a Barkindji woman, but now calling Adelaide home – saltwater country.
A program celebrating First Nations choreographers, not to be missed.
10 – 13 May
The Odeon, Norwood
16 May – 4 June
South Australian Tour
Taught by the company dancers and creatives, Australian Dance Theatre’s Autumn School Holiday Workshops are a fantastic opportunity for young people to develop their dance skills in a fun and open environment at the company’s home, The Odeon.
Each workshop includes warm ups, skill development and creative dance activities inspired by the company’s current works in development.
Suitable for ages 8 and above.
26 – 29 April
With the help of our incredible supporters in 2021, Australian Dance Theatre toured across South Australia for the first time in many years.
In 2022, the Company takes Outside Within to seven venues across the state – from Whyalla to Mount Gambier – connecting with audiences who have potentially been missing out in recent years.
Australian Dance Theatre is proud to be the South Australian dance company, committed to presenting works to local audiences, no matter which corner of the state they live in.
Help support us as we reconnect to audiences across our amazing state!
After a sold-out Anna Karenina season in 2021, The Australian Ballet returns to Adelaide in July with Counterpointe: a mixed bill displaying the extremes of ballet, stretching classical forms into original modernity.
Heralding rave reviews when it premiered in Sydney, Counterpointe is an unmissable display of both classical and contemporary ballet at their very finest.
Counterpointe pairs an excerpt from the elegant 19th-century classic Raymonda with the mesmerising complexity of Artifact Suite, by the radically inventive choreographer William Forsythe, and adds George Balanchine’s beloved Tchaikovsky Pas de Deux.
