Swan Lake – Perth Festival

Concert or Performance

14 Feb 2019 to 17 Feb 2019

From the imagination of one of the world’s foremost dance and theatre-makers Michael Keegan-Dolan (Fabulous Beast) comes a beautiful, brilliant and utterly gripping deconstruction of one of the world’s most famous ballets.

Strange and unsettling, full of bleak humour and wry characterisations, this Swan Lake is definitely not the traditional classical ballet version. Set in the Midlands of Ireland, where ancient mythology and the modern world collide, stunning dancing and powerful imagery are interwoven with inventive storytelling, song and live music. The story is relayed like an Irish folk tale, set to a haunting and melodic Nordic and Irish traditional music score played live by the Slow Moving Clouds trio, but the themes and their inventive portrayal are completely contemporary. Moments of darkness give way to scenes of intense rapture in a must-see work of pure theatrical magic.

This event is part of Perth Festival, one of Western Australia’s premier cultural events.
