The Australian Ballet – Luminous

STUDIO:  3 Deep Design
CLIENT:  The Australian Ballet

On 2 November 1962, The Australian Ballet staged its very first performance at Her Majesty’s Theatre in Sydney while a photographer snapped discretely from the wings. Over the next five decades, a succession of photographers – from celebrated snappers to talented amateurs – would shadow the young company’s every move. Luminous – Celebrating 50 Years of The Australian Ballet, captures dancers at work and at play, on stage and on tour, in rehearsals and in love, along with the designers, directors and choreographers who nurtured its artistic vision over the past 50 years.

For the past two years, 3 Deep have crafted a cultural artefact of significant detail and scale. At 370 pages, the 3.2kg hard cover tomb presents a finely curated body of images from many of the countries most significant archives. Enveloped within a 12mm thick slipcase, the object reflects many of 3 Deep’s trademark signatures such as well crafted typography, engaging and complex photographic narratives and stunning production values.
