The West Australian Ballet’s first steps back to the stage

The West Australian Ballet has announced it will return to the stage from 11-26 September at Her Majesty’s Theatre, Perth.

The company will perform Dracula, a ballet first staged by WAB in 2018.

Choreographed by Krzysztof Pastor the ballet is a co-production with the Queensland Ballet however the QB rescheduled the ballet until 2021.

The WAB has also announced a short season of  Genesis, the company’s annual creative showcase in which dancers choreograph new works on their fellow dancers.

Genesis will take place in front of a small audience in the West Australian Ballet Centre’s Studio I. 

There will be nine performances from 30 July to 8 August. 

The WAB describes the season as “a rare opportunity to be up close and personal with the artists.

“You’ll also be able to enjoy our post-show Q&A session with each of the choreographers to discover what inspired them and drove the creative process for their work.

“We will have strict procedures for the audience members entering the West Australian Ballet Centre. Audience members will be required to:

 

  • Practice social distancing from audience members not in their household,
  • Have their temperature checked upon entering the Centre, and
  • Complete contact tracing details when purchasing tickets and entering the Centre.

“West Australian Ballet will also have sanitiser and optional face masks available for patrons”.
