Being & Time is a new, triple-bill contemporary ballet that marks the 10th anniversary of the Melbourne Ballet Company.

Company Director Simon Hoy has choreographed Being & Time along with internationally acclaimed dance makers Tim Podesta (South African Ballet Theatre, Projection Dance) and Lucas Jervies (Australian Ballet, Scapino Ballet, Sydney Dance Company). The ballet delves into the belief that philosophical thinking begins with and reflects its human subjects, in their acting, feeling, and as recognisable living human individuals. This existential understanding of being is grounded in time.

Galeazzi is performing in Tim Podesta’s Architecture of Loss, his work for the Triple Bill. This is a unique opportunity to see Galeazzi perform!
