The Aus­tralian Bal­let’s “Sym­phony in C” brings to­gether great works from the past cen­tury to show­case the vigour of mod­ern bal­let. The works in­clude the ti­tle piece, “Sym­phony in C”, a trib­ute to the golden era of clas­si­cal dance with ex­plo­sive leaps and quick foot­work. Mak­ing their Mel­bourne main­stage de­buts are two new works by corps de bal­let dancers Richard House and Alice Topp. House’s “From Si­lence” fea­tures four dancers ex­plor­ing youth­ful love and loss, ac­com­pa­nied by cin­e­matic mu­sic by Michael Ny­man, while Topp’s “Lit­tle At­las” sees three dancers in sleek black per­form­ing an ex­plo­ration of the hu­man abil­ity to recre­ate and un­make mem­o­ries. 24 Au­gust–2 Septem­ber, State The­atre, Arts Cen­tre Mel­bourne, St Kilda Road, Mel­bourne. 1300 369 741. aus­tralian­bal­let.com.au
