Wikileaks the Ballet is a hybrid dance/theatre work currently in development, responding to the Wikileaks phenomena as a major historical, global event featuring a controversial Australian protagonist. The project tackles the revitalisation of narratives in forms where they have long been persistently stale and static.
The work is being developed with core collaborators based in Australia, the UK, Sweden, Nigeria/France, and the USA. The work will be created in chapters that allow artists from different parts of the world to respond to the Wikileaks cables that relate directly to their home cultures/politics/geography.
The artistic team and plans for the project will be announced in September 2012.
