17 March — 25 March, Playhouse, QPAC

Three transcendent dance pieces with raw, powerful movement evoking stories of human experience.

Christopher Bruce’s 1981 work Ghost Dances is one of the most celebrated contemporary ballet pieces of its generation. It tells stories of love and compassion, as death – in the form of the iconic “ghosts” – interrupts the daily lives of a series of ordinary people.

Liam Scarlett’s No Man’s Land draws on the power of dance to reflect upon the heartache of war. It brings to life the entwined destinies of women working in munition factories at home with the men fighting in the trenches.

Glass Concerto, choreographed by Greg Horsman, showcases the speed and precision of the artists of Queensland Ballet.  Capturing the pulse and escalating intensity of Philip Glass’s music, this piece premiéred at the 43rd Prix de Lausanne Gala in Switzerland.

An assemblage of high energy, dynamic and emotional movement, Raw will captivate and inspire audiences.
