Aurum by the Australian ballet

Got to see Aurum by the ABT at The Joyce theater last night https://joyce.org/performances/australian-ballet

Aurum was a spectacular piece of dance - https://australianballet.com.au/tv/aurum-beauty-in-the-broken

And seeing it at The Joyce was extra special as cheaper than seeing the ABT in Sydney and we we close enough to hear them breath (no orchestra pit at The Joyce).

Stage is a little cramped/small but for the pieces they did, worked fine.

Wanted to give a shoutout to Amanda McGuigan absolute star of the night, on point and nailed every moment, has the ability to show soul and emotions in facial expressions and movement that is being dropped for technique by too many dancers.......

The use of the gold metallic floor and reflective lighting was truly spectacular.
