Description What makes Graeme Murphy Australia’s premier choreographer? A bold imagination, irreverent humour, profound musicality and a matchless sense of the body in space.

In 2018, Murphy celebrates 50 years with The Australian Ballet. He began his dance career in the company’s corps de ballet, made his first work for our Choreographic Workshop, and went on to an incandescent career as the head of Sydney Dance Company.

Along the way, he produced landmark productions for The Australian Ballet: he set his version of The Nutcracker in a scorching Melbourne summer, made Swan Lake into a modern love
