West AustralianWest Australian Ballet will perform in the Indonesian capital Jakarta for the first time in more than two decades.


West Australian Ballet Jakarta tour will run from 2-7 August 2016.


Joining West Australian Ballet’s Artistic Director to announce the August tour, Commonwealth Arts Minister Mitch Fifield and WA Minister for Culture and the Arts, John Day, said the visit was made possible by $114,440 in Catalyst funding, along with $20,000 from the WA Government.


Minister Fifield said this was an exciting opportunity for West Australian Ballet to share its experience and expertise.


“The tour is a great acknowledgement of the standard the company has reached, and a wonderful way to build the relationship between West Australian Ballet and the burgeoning Indonesian arts sector.”


Minister Day said that the tour would help further strengthen important cultural ties with Australia’s nearest neighbour.


“This will be an extensive educational and entertainment experience, but it also symbolises the strong and maturing partnership between our two nations,” he said.


West Australian Ballet will present a program of classical and contemporary works alongside performances by a youth ensemble comprising local Indonesian ballet students at the Jakarta Theatre, Taman Ismail Marzuki.


The main performance program will include David Dawson’s 5 and On the Nature of Daylight, a short solo from The Nutcracker, pas de deux from Beauty & the Beast, Annabelle Lopez Ochoa’s La Pluie, and scenes from Jayne Smeulders’ Cinderella.


A series of workshops and masterclasses will also be held with local dance teachers and students, along with skills transfer sessions with Indonesian theatre technicians.
