In a symbiotic exploration of movement and sonority, Rite & Revolution celebrated Western Australian stories with a collaboration between the WA Youth Orchestra and choreographer Scott Elstermann. Combining the awesome force of WAYO’s 100-piece flagship orchestra with 25 guest artists and troupe of independently selected dancers, this concert was a truly unique offering in WAYO’s considerable performance history.
With the support of our sponsors, donors and supporters, we delivered a performance experience that was diverse, innovative and impactful to an audience in excess of 1000 patrons.
At WAYO, the goal has always been to create an experience for our members that nurtures their creative education whilst being representative of the community and culture they exist within. The intent with Rite & Revolution was to build an opportunity that was demanding, testing and forward looking. We are proud to demonstrate the success and community impact of this project in the following pages.
