The Morning After – PUSH

When

Sometimes, the best part of seeing a show is the conversation it sparks. Our series of ‘morning after’ breakfast events invites you to join a selection of writers, critics and arts lovers to dissect selected Melbourne Festival shows, sharing views on what worked, what didn’t – and why.

Each Morning After session will pair one or more of our creative writers with established critics to talk about what they’ve seen. Come and debrief in a relaxed, informal atmosphere – the perfect way to share ideas and inspiration about art.

This morning, we’ll be talking about PUSH, a breathtaking, multi-award-winning collaboration between two of contemporary dance’s brightest stars – Sylvie Guillem and Russell Maliphant. PUSH presents four dance works by acclaimed UK choreographer, Russell Maliphant, across three solos and one duet.
