THE AUSTRALIAN BALLET
LIVE IN A MELBOURNE ALLEY
Gathering on a chilly Melbourne evening in the city’s outer rim, in an inspired twist we teamed up with The Australian Ballet for episode number eight. Departing from our usual coverage of the live music scene we captured this sexy new piece from young Melbourne-based choreographer Alice Topp.
Breathing life and energy into the simple flesh-coloured garments, Vivenne Wong and Calvin Hannaford performed “Trace” within the narrow space of Guildford Lane, accompanied by the beautiful warm tones of classical guitarist Tiago Brissos. Highlighted by Utopian Slumps against the backdrop of the Guildford Lane Gallery, and looked over by curious passersby, this latest episode eloquently highlights the fusion between cinema and performing art that is our goal.
The experience left all of the crew truly breathless.
“I have never had a real emotional response to ballet until right now. Definitely cried. This was beautiful.”
