Presented by Sydney Festival
The enigmatic allure of Nijinsky’s legendary ballet, The Afternoon of a Faun, is reborn for a new century by choreographer Martin del Amo.
Multi-award winning solo dancer Paul White navigates a dream-like landscape full of hidden dangers and secret pleasures, a kinetic combustion of animalistic grace and menace. Visceral and poetic, this contemporary, intimate dance work is performed to Mark Bradshaw’s haunting live score. Anatomy of an Afternoon is a unique collaboration tapping the same power and radical spirit of the original Ballets Russes masterpiece exactly a century ago.
