Time in Motion : 50 Years of The Australian Ballet … highlights now online

We’ve just completed the finishing touches to a new website that helps us share highlights from our exhibitions with online audiences. Now we can offer a new level of access to our programs for visitors who may not able to attend the exhibition in person, and provide an extra treat for visitors who’d like to refer back to their favourite objects or share them through social media.

The first exhibition to be featured online in this way is Time in Motion which celebrates The Australian Ballet’s extraordinary 50 year history.

Time in Motion: 50 Years of The Australian Ballet celebrates the enduring style, strength and passion of The Australian Ballet and its creative output over 50 years. Drawn primarily from Arts Centre Melbourne’s Performing Arts Collection and the archives of The Australian Ballet, this exhibition re-visits some of the company’s most memorable works, illustrating its dynamic rise to the heights of international success.

The new website features Dance Curator Margot Anderson’s informative histories about many of The Australian Ballet’s landmark productions from 1962 to the present day. Delve into the layers presented through the exhibition’s themes, and explore some beautiful imagery of costumes, designs and photography.

Please drop in and visit the Time in Motion Website and let us know what you think.

Warning : Torres Strait Islander visitors are advised that this website and the associated exhibition contains images of deceased people.

Balletomanes will also be interested in The Australian Ballet’s new timeline.

If you’re a regular visitor to Collections online, you may notice we’ve made some other changes in preparation for a very exciting new mobile web project that’s coming soon to celebrate the reopening of the new Hamer Hall on July 26th. Stay tuned for more about On Cue – a mobile self-guided tour of the collections on display at Arts Centre Melbourne. But more on that later!
