Experiencing Genesis – a creative ballet showcase

This evening the Governor and Ms Annus visited the home of the West Australian Ballet in Maylands to watch their latest performance.

Genesis is the West Australian Ballet’s latest creative showcase. Featuring 47 of the company’s dancers, the show highlights short conceptual dance works choreographed by the dancers themselves. Presented in an intimate setting, this short performance season is in honour of being based at the former Institute of the Blind building for 10 years. In that theme, this year’s season will see 10 dancers concept, choreograph, design the lighting and costumes for new works, all with a length between approximately five and 10 minutes and a total running time of approximately one hour.

After the performance, the Governor commented on the various range of unusual movements and complimented the competent and creative choreographers, “they delivered a stunning performance that even non-ballet fans would enjoy. They were just amazing.”
