RETURNS TO BRISBANE IN 2013 AUSTRALIAN TOUR PREMIERE
After its acclaimed world premiere tour throughout Australia in 2011 and subsequent sold out seasons throughout 2012 in London, Paris, Zurich, Berlin, Frankfurt and Vienna, the international Cuban sensation Ballet Revolución returns in 2013 with an extensive Australian tour, opening at the Queensland Performing Arts Centre (QPAC).
From 18 to 22 June in QPAC’s Lyric Theatre, don’t miss experiencing some of the world’s most talented classical and contemporary dancers perform to the infectious rhythms of Latin-America and number one hit music from Usher, Shakira, Beyonce, Enrique Iglesias, J-Lo, Prince, Chris Brown to name just a few. The result is an explosive, intensive, sensual and impressively athletic dance performance, full of raw energy with a distinctly Cuban Flavour.
“So many great things have happened for the show since we had our World Premiere in Australia two years ago,” said Australian Producer and Creator of Ballet Revolución Mark Brady.
“We have toured many countries around the world and had the amazing honour of being invited to perform in the presence of Queen Elizabeth II for the Royal Variety Concert on 19 November 2012.
“Internationally the show continues to wow audiences no matter where we perform, so bringing the show back to Australia is very exciting. It is particularly terrific to be opening the show in Brisbane as this is the home town of our show’s choreographer, original Tap Dog star, Aaron Cash, who will be travelling with us for this 2013 season.”
Ballet Revolución mixes the dynamics of contemporary dance, brilliant Ballet, powerful street dance and hip hop and is best described as ’Ballet with Attitude’.
Combining 20 of the finest dancers you will ever have the pleasure of seeing from the ’Island of Dance’, Cuba, and eight of the hottest young Cuban musicians live on stage, results in a fuelled Cuban cocktail of unbridled passion, pure energy and athletic skill.
International number one hit music ignites the fire of the highly trained dancers allowing them to let their tremendous versatility, musicality and passion run free while infecting the audience with this mood in no time.
The dancers were trained at one of the world’s most prestigious dance institutions in their home country, the Escuela Nacional de Arte, with its renowned faculty of modern dance, and at the famous Escuela Nacional de Ballet for classical dance. Dance training is strongly promoted in Cuba, as dance means more than art on the Caribbean island, it means LIFE. The dancers thus unite in their movements a unique Cuban expression with the highest dancing virtuosity.
Don’t miss Ballet Revolución performing five dynamic performances only at QPAC from 19 to 22 June. To book go to www.qpac.com.au or phone 136 246.
