The Australian Ballet on Stream

Treat yourself to a performance by The Australian Ballet with this exquisite collection of work. Included are Warumuk – In the Dark Night, a collaboration between The Australian Ballet and Bangarra Dance Theatre that takes its inspiration from traditional Aboriginal stories; Wayne McGregor’s Dyad 1929, which pushes classical movement to its thrilling, experimental limits with an electrifying score by avant-garde titan Steve Reich; and Paquita, choreographed by Marius Petipa, a dazzling showcase for The Australian Ballet at its exuberant, shimmering best. There’s also superstar choreographer Alexei Ratmansky’s fantastical take on Cinderella, and Erik Bruhn’s production of August Bournoville’s classic La Sylphide, a supernatural Scottish fable in two entrancing acts. If that’s not enough, the landmark three-part documentary And We Danced takes a journey through The Australian Ballet’s rich, storied history, pirouetting from its birth at the dawn of the ’60s through its transformation into the powerhouse company it is today. The Australian Ballet performances are available to rent from $3.49.

UK/AU Digital Season

Presented by the Sydney Opera House and The British Council, this cutting edge series continues to bring together an array of unique artists and performers from across the UK. From hip-hop and beatboxing to dance and choreography, these compelling performances burst with fresh, invigorating perspectives on our ever-changing present.

BAC Beatbox Academy | Frankenstein – How To Make A Monster

It’s alive! Mary Shelley’s goth classic gets reimagined as a literally breath-taking musical soundscape, as a cast of rapping, beatboxing British performers transform the timeless chiller into a 21st-century fable about the monsters society creates. A smash at both Edinburgh Festival Fringe and Adelaide Fringe that you won’t want to miss.

Jonzi D & Bim Ajadi | Here/Not Here

Dance, hip-hop, sign language and Visual Vernacular collide in this funky, funny and thought-provoking performance piece, written by British hip hop advocate Jonzi D and led by a cast of disabled artists.

Watch now

Botis Seva & Billy Boyd Cape | Reach

This award-winning short film, directed by filmmaker (and fka twigs / Pussy Riot collaborator) Billy Boyd Cape and Olivier Award-winning choreographer Botis Seva, combines dance and hip-hop to explore themes of love, abandonment and fatherhood as a young man journeys toward independence – and struggles to reconcile his mind and soul.

Laila Diallo | 1:1

An experimental performance set in a uniquely abstract space, Bristol-based artist Laila Diallo’s short film captures a dance made to the scale of a kitchen – a replica of Diallo’s domestic space that transforms via movement and memory.

Watch now

Jo Bannon | Kitchen Alba

Staying with the kitchen theme, Jo Bannon’s evocatively strange performance work – made amidst a world in lockdown – finds the artist turning her mundane surroundings into a gently surreal landscape, riffing on religion, white goods, family and faith.

Watch now

Still House | In the Letting Go

Renowned movement director Dan Canham, whose work has appeared at the National Theatre and the Old Vic, brings his wildly original vision to this performance project exploring patriarchy, vulnerability, intimacy, care-giving, playfulness and love. A refreshing, forward-thinking perspective on new models of masculinity.
