Austral Flora Ballet

Andrew Thomas Huang's Austral Flora Ballet is a hypnotic fusion of contemporary dance and motion-capture technology that brings Australian botanic wonders to life as never seen before. Together with choreographer Toogie Barcelo, musician/composer Kelsey Lu and the animation design team at Bemo in Los Angeles, Huang crafted a lush spectacle from such beloved floral gems as the New South Wales Waratah, the Kangaroo Paw and the Red Beard Orchid. These unique native plant species inspired the animated shapes, colour palette and textures to produce a magnificent otherworldly opus.
