Final Brilliant Season by Garry Stewart – Now On Sale
25-29 NOVEMBER 2021
LOVE. SEX. JEALOUSY. EXPLOSIVE DANCE. G.
For his final brilliant season at the helm of Australian Dance Theatre, Artistic Director Garry Stewart is bringing one of his most iconic, beloved works back to the Adelaide stage for the first time in almost a decade – G, his frenetic, no-holds-barred dismantling of the quintessential, romantic classical ballet, Giselle.
In 2000, Garry premiered his first major work for ADT: Birdbrain, an ironic, post-modern deconstruction of the classical Swan Lake. In 2008, he continued his project of referencing iconic ballets with the acclaimed debut of G, a reworking of Giselle. With a driving musical score created by Luke Smiles (Motion Laboratories), one of the luminaries of composition for Australian contemporary dance, G is performed by eleven phenomenally talented ADT dancers in a “jaw-droppingly physical” display of choreographic virtuosity (The Guardian London). Exploring themes including feminism, mental illness and the #MeToo movement against an electronic backdrop, G turns classical ballet on its head. Watch the trailer for G online now.
With the closing night performance of G taking place exactly 22 years to the day since Garry first took over the reins at ADT, Adelaide audiences will once again be treated to “the most thrilling Australian dance work you could hope to see” (The Advertiser). Don’t miss your chance to see the iconic G by Garry Stewart – five shows only at Her Majesty’s Theatre, Adelaide from 25-29 November 2021.
