Home Your IT Entertainment Telstra to stream The Australian Ballet live to the Internet

Telstra - a principal sponsor of the Australian Ballet company - is to stream live to the Internet the final performance of the company's ballet: Bodytorque.Muses from Sydney Theatre on 29 May.

The live broadcast will be available to all Internet users worldwide at www.bigpondvideo.com and will later be available to view as video on demand.

Bodytorque.Muses is the eighth instalment of The Australian Ballet's annual search for new choreographic talent. The program opens on Thursday 26 May at the Sydney Theatre and runs for five performances. The Ballet's  artistic director, David McAllister, said: 'It's fitting that our first live streaming event will be as part of the experimental Bodytorque program, known for pushing the boundaries of ballet into the future.

This online event is the latest in a series of initiatives by The Australian Ballet designed to let audiences out of main stage reach, such as those in regional and remote communities, be part of the ballet experience.

According to Telstra, "The company has well and truly embraced the possibilities of digital media, with a popular Facebook page with over 25,000 fans and a highly engaged Twitter community with more than a dozen dancers tweeting.  The internationally read blog Behind Ballet, with more than 30,000 unique visits per month, complements a main website rich in content."
