Event description
Iconic ballerina Misty Copeland made history when she became the first African-American woman

About this Event

To be named principal dancer of the legendary American Ballet Theater. An incredible, behind-the-scenes story of how Copeland overcame her tumultuous upbringing and near career-ending injuries to become one of the most revered dancers of her generation.

More than just a ballet success story, Copeland's journey is a hugely inspirational, universal tale of perseverance that examines her prodigious rise and her potentially career ending injury - alongside themes of race and body image in the elite ballet world.

LIVE MUSIC with LUKE BENNETT

After having grown up falling asleep to the sounds of Fleetwood Mac, Tracy Chapman and Dire Straits, it wasn’t until 14 years of age that Launceston born Luke Bennett started to learn the guitar, and find his own way in music... from years of being a bedroom guitarist it wasn’t until Luke had finished college and adopted a nomadic lifestyle that he found songwriting to be a natural expression that followed.

Displaying catchy pop sensibilities that resemble Artists such as John Mayer and Sting and fusing them with the stripped back earthiness of songwriters such as Xavier Rudd and Jack Johnson, Luke Bennett’s sound is sure to feed the soul.

Writing songs that express the richness of life and its adventure’s whilst delving into deeper questions and internal desires, at just 23years this young singer songwriter is one to keep an eye out for…

Luke’s influences include Mark Knopfler, Lindsey Buckingham, John Mayer, Jack Johnson, Sting and The Police, The Beautiful Girls, Donovan Frankenreiter, Josh Owen, John Butler Trio and many more...
