An Australian wartime love story
Yours Truly is a wartime inspired love story of those who left and those who were left behind. Set against the backdrop of World War II and 1940s rural Australia, this critically acclaimed production uniquely combines dance and drama to tell the powerful story of three couples separated by war.
Winner of best dance production at the Victorian Dance Awards 2014, Yours Truly has received rave reviews from audiences throughout Australia and features choreography by renowned Australian choreographers Paul Malek (So You Think You Can Dance, Dancing with The Stars, Transit Dance) and Kim Adam.
“In a generation where choice is something we take for granted, and conscription is something we’ve only heard of in school, I felt this would be a really interesting and important part of our history to explore.” says Malek.
The show’s music is by Antony and the Johnsons, a New York-based alternative rock band known for their cinematic orchestral arrangements and haunting vocals. Their music really brings viewers into the period of this piece, complementing the heart-wrenching story perfectly.
Yours Truly provides a heartbreaking glimpse into Australian history and is an exceptional show that will never be forgotten.
