Marking the first collaboration between Bangarra Dance Theatre and The Australian Ballet, Rites was part of a changing political landscape that had an impact far beyond what was presented on stage. 25 years after the debut, Stephen Page, Artistic Director of Bangarra Dance Theatre and choreographer of Rites, comes to Arts Centre Melbourne to discuss the piece.

Hosted by Wesley Enoch, the conversation will give insight into how the work was created, what it meant for performers and audiences alike, and the significance of Rites within the political landscape of the time. Book tickets:

We just added recordings of our six most recent Ballet Connoisseurship seminars to our On-Demand Vimeo library. With this addition, we now offer streaming access to 26 previously recorded sessions of Ballet Connoisseurship!

Speakers include SAB faculty members, alumni, and music historians, and select sessions also include in-studio demonstrations from our SAB students - providing an even more dynamic breakdown of the choreography. View the full library and pick a few to stream at the beach this summer!
