A collaboration between choreographer Graeme Murphy and composer Barry Conyngham, the ballet Vast was one of the most substantial artistic undertakings to celebrate the Australian Bicentenary in 1988. As part of the specially funded National Bicentennial Dance Event, the production was intended to be a timely celebration of the growth and success of dance companies from all round Australia. The four movements of music for Vast stem from the notion of Australia as a continent, completely surrounded by The Sea and The Coast, The Centre providing a spiritual homeland and The Cities representing those areas most populated with its diverse, talented, innovative and resilient people.
