Choreography of the Seasons at NGA Play Sally Smart

Exhibition and Shows

1 Dec 2018 to 30 Mar 2019

Join us every Saturday during school term time to learn the dance moves of the seasons in NGA Play. Join an informal session to learn a few simple dance steps from some of the most loved performances of the legendary Ballet Russes.

Sally Smart has long been fascinated and inspired by the Ballets Russes and the National Gallery of Australia has one of the world’s great collections of Ballets Russes costumes.

Sally Smart invites you to enter a Ballets Russes inspired world of colourful cut-out assemblages and activities. Create your own costumes and headwear before stepping into your own performance, dancing alongside projections of Brooke Stamp who has responded to the original dances with her own dance improvisation. The space also unfolds to reveal immersive places to create your own narratives in pencil and felt, blackboard activities and paper construction.
