Summary An early attempt by the National Theatre Ballet Company and the Sydney Symphony Orchestra to synthesize elements of traditional Aboriginal dance and ceremony into a formal, contemporary ballet. Inspired by composer John Antill's best known work which was based on an authentic corroboree that he had witnessed as a child, the ballet was commissioned by the Arts Council of Australia and was choreographed by Rex Reid. This is the film of the world premiere of Corroboree in Sydney, and a behind-the-scenes glimpse of the rehearsal, design and preparation that went into it.
