Salome - Program's cover with Bradley Chatfield, Josef Brown & Tracey Carrodus (photo ©Lois Greenfield)


Graeme Murphy’s internationally acclaimed Salome is a breathtaking interpretation of the fascinating biblical tale of Salome and her dance of the Seven Veils. Graeme’s sinuous choreography and sly wit coupled with the evocative rhythms of Michael Askill’s score – performed live with members of the Sydney Dance Company – take the audience on a memorable and intense journey.
