"In its diamond anniversary year, West Australian Ballet presents a dazzling triple bill. Poéme de l’extase – Australian Premiere, Originally created by John Cranko for Margot Fonteyn, Poéme de l’extase tells the story of a famous actress recalling her past. Flattered at first by the attentions of a much younger man who falls in love with her, she then recalls her former loves and realising that this part of her life has already fulfilled, rejects the hapless young man. Scriabin’s music, with its accumulation torrents of emotion, coupled with opulent designs from Pablo Núñez, capture the essence of the Belle Époque in this stunning ballet. Jeu de carte, One of his most adored and enduring works, Jeu de carte, a poker game in three deals, revels in Cranko’s playful tenacity. The protagonist is the clown faced, red-wigged Joker, whose disruptive, chameleonic presence determines the outcome of the game. Set to Stravinsky’s witty score, this ballet has been a hit with audiences the world over. Prélude á l’aprés-midi d’un faune & Dying Swan

Brought back especially for the company’s 60th anniversary, Prélude á l’aprés-midi d’un faune was choreographed by Barry Moreland in 1985 for former West Australian Ballet star Ronnie Van den Bergh. The work brilliantly captures the languid imagery from Stephane Mallarme, on whose poem Debussy based his famous composition. The final diamond in this program of exquisite gems is Michel Fokine’s Dying Swan, created for luminary Anna Pavlova in 1905 and restaged in 2012 by Perth’s own world-star, Margaret Illmann."

BWW Review: BEIRUT ADRENALINE Gives Audiences Rawness and Reality at Downstairs At Belvoir St Theatre
by Brodie Paparella - Aug 2, 2016

Whilst much of Australian theatre is gloriously preoccupied with exporting homeland stories and home-grown talent on international platforms, there are Diamonds in the rough inviting the stories from nations far flung and offering us connection to a world we often feel disconnected from down here in comparable paradise. Beirut Adrenaline transports audiences into the conflict happening in Lebanon, that has become as much a part of life as work and romance. There, Marwan Daher lives separated from his family who have escaped to Paris. From their perspective, there is a somewhat rosy glow we can identify with as fellow outsiders. Director Anna Jahjah keeps the action remarkably genuine, overlapping rushing drama with sincere humour and teary-eyed nostalgia that left a slew of audience members lost in reminiscence, some weeping, others holding tight to their loved ones. It was truly a community being part of the audience. (more...)
