Andonis Foniadakis’s Selon désir is a gorgeous synthesis of colour, light, music and movement. Following performances in the UK and Italy in 2015, the RNZB is excited to share this special work by one of Europe’s most dynamic choreographers, with New Zealand audiences.
Described by The Guardian as ‘the work that changed ballet for ever’, these will be the RNZB’s first performances of William Forsythe’s In the Middle, Somewhat Elevated. Commissioned by Rudolf Nureyev for the Paris Opéra Ballet in 1987, for a virtuoso cast of young stars, it is a profound honour, and a great thrill, for the RNZB to perform this work.
Alexander Ekman’s Cacti has taken the dance world by storm since its premiere in The Hague in 2010. Combining daredevil virtuosity and split second timing with a playful wit, Cacti, in which the dancers of the RNZB will be joined onstage by the New Zealand String Quartet, is a celebration of physicality and the sheer joy of dance.
Touring to Wellington, Auckland, Christchurch and Dunedin, this is an unmissable start to the Royal New Zealand Ballet’s 2016 season.
Speed of Light is presented in association with the New Zealand Festival (Wellington) and the Auckland Arts Festival (Auckland).
Wellington St James Theatre, 26 – 28 February
Auckland SKYCITY Theatre, 2 – 6 March
Christchurch Isaac Theatre Royal, 10 – 12 March
Dunedin Regent Theatre, 16 March
