AB sets itself a challenge
by HILARY CRAMPTON for the Age

Combining Bangarra Dance Theatre and the AB in a return of Stephen Page's Rites to coincide with the Commonwealth Games is clearly aimed at the international tourist market, and has a distinctly political sensibility. Coupling it with the new work, Amalgamate, adds a frisson of risk, as Page tries to capitalise on the organic exchange he felt emerging when the two companies first worked together.

Everything old is new
by JO ROBERTS for the Age

Why Her Majesty's? Because one of the highlights of next year's program had its beginnings there: the first Australian performances of Les Ballets Russes (The Russian Ballet). Next year the AB will present the first of four annual tributes to the company in a program called Revolutions.

Revolutions
by HILARY CRAMPTON for the Age

The principals, Lucinda Dunn, Olivia Bell and Kirsty Martin, all achieved moments of transcendence, which over time will doubtless become more consistent.

Damian Welch had difficulty finding the soft pliancy in landing from the airy leaps of the poet, but the corps de ballets, which forms an ever-shifting background to the solos, filled their actions with a sense of faraway enchantment.
