‘Ambiguous Content’ West Australian Ballet, Ballet at the Quarry: Five by Night

A contrasting work, Craig Davidson’s Ambiguous Content to a score by Philip Glass, was a world premiere. Much of the ambiguity was provided by the dim lighting, with dancers appearing and disappearing like a magician’s doves and rabbits. There was a hint of ballroom in the staging, with the dancers appearing introspective to the nth degree and largely unconscious of the audience. Kate Venables’ costumes and Benjamin Fry’s lighting also contributed to the ambiance of this impressive piece.
