Co3, West Australia's contemporary dance company, is combining with the West Australian Ballet for its forthcoming season of STATE.

Co3 will present Raewyn Hill's CARNIVALE.6, which will feature alongside two new works by Polish choreographer Robert Bondara and local choreographer and Co-Director of STRUT Dance, James O'Hara.

CARNIVALE.6 is a compelling work that transcends time and borders. It draws inspiration from the mesmerising world of Spanish bullfighting and the historical "dancing plague" of 1518, weaving together a tapestry of energy and passion.

Hill is the Artistic Director of Co3 and CARNIVALE.6 is a pivotal work in her growing repertoire. Originally performed to the iconic Ravel's Bolero, this piece, initially known as Fugue, graced the stage as part of the 50th anniversary celebration of the Australian Ballet in 2012. Over the years, it has transformed into the feverish gem that is CARNIVALE.6.

A blended ensemble of Co3 and WA Ballet dancers will come together to bring CARNIVALE.6 to life, promising to push boundaries with a "relentless fusion of tradition and innovation".

STATE will be presented at the Heath Ledger Theatre at the State Theatre Centre of WA from May 31 to June 8. Find out more here.
