AUSTRALIAN BALLET DANCERS IN PHOTO EXHIBITION

Photographer Lisa Tomasetti’s latest exhibition titled “The Australian Ballet on the International Stage” is running from 18-25 November at M Contemporary, 37 Ocean St Woollahra. Lisa is an award winning stills photographer and visual artist since 1990.

The exhibit features stunning photos of the Australian Ballet on their international tours in Paris, Tokyo and New York. In this series, the dancers are removed from the highly controlled interior environment of the stage and taken outside to the streets of multiple city locations. The images capture the energy, grace and passion for movement, embodied by the dancers and juxtapose the classical form with the gritty urban landscape of these iconic cities.
