Her Majesty's Theatre, Adelaide

LOVE. SEX. JEALOUSY. EXPLOSIVE DANCE. G.

For his final brilliant season at the helm of Australian Dance Theatre, renowned Artistic Director Garry Stewart is bringing one of his most iconic, beloved works back to the Adelaide stage for the first time in almost a decade – G, his frenetic deconstruction of the quintessential romantic ballet, Giselle.

With the closing night performance of G taking place exactly 22 years to the day since Garry first took over the reins at ADT, Adelaide audiences will once again be treated to “the most thrilling Australian dance work you could hope to see” (The Advertiser).

In 2000, Garry premiered his first major work for ADT: Birdbrain, an ironic, post-modern deconstruction of the classical Swan Lake. In 2008, he continued his project of referencing iconic ballets with the acclaimed debut of G, a reworking of Giselle. Referencing Steven Wainwright’s seminal essay entitled ‘Giselle, Madness and Death‘, which links the ballet narrative of Giselle to the pathologisation of women as hysterics in early 19th century France, Garry’s work “strip[s] away the sentimental pathos of the traditional Giselle in order to focus directly on the raw emotions of jealousy, anger and lust” (Dance Australia).

The musical score for G was created by Luke Smiles (Motion Laboratories), one of the luminaries of music composition for the new wave of Australian contemporary dance.

Don’t miss your final chance to see ADT’s phenomenally talented dancers in the iconic G by Garry Stewart – five shows only at Her Majesty’s Theatre, Adelaide from 25-29 November 2021.
