DANCEBOURNE ARTS proudly present a renewed version of their first original progamme, Pointe, Line & Surface.

Paraphrasing Wassily Kandinsky's theoretical work on abstract painting, 'Pointe, Line and Surface' defines and expresses the elemental nature of dance through three pieces exploring the themes of technique, alignment and movement and the evolution of classical dance through time.

The premiere of Pointe, Line & Surface - a history of ballet is proudly supported by the City of Darebin and will be performed at the Darebin Arts Centre on Thursday August 29th at 7.30pm.
