Tim Harbour, one of The Australian Ballet’s three resident choreographers, is bringing the 21st century to our 20:21 triple bill with his brand-new work Filigree and Shadow. So what’s it all about, and why do you need to see it?
Reflecting the pace of information in the modern age, Tim’s choreography is fast, dense, multi-focused and intricate. He says, “A lot of the movement sits in the upper body, and the articulation you can get just from using your wrists, fingers, elbows and shoulders. That creates a kind of filigree around the core form of the torso and the legs – those arms create an embroidery around the body.”
