Royal New Zealand Ballet – Tutus on Tour

Sunday 1st-Monday 2nd March 2020

The Royal New Zealand Ballet is delighted to expand the company’s much-loved regional touring programme in 2020, featuring works tailor-made for the RNZB by trail blazing choreographers at home in New Zealand and on the world stage.

A family programme for all ages, watch the dancers of the RNZB perform some of their favourites works.

Inspired by the goddess of the hunt and of the moon, Sarah Foster-Sproull’s Artemis Rising was created in 2019 as a retirement gift for the much-loved former RNZB Principal Abigail Boyle. Remember, Mama is a tender look at the relationships between mothers and sons, from childhood to old age.

Berceuse by US choreographer Penny Saunders, a rapturous, deeply musical pas de deux to a lyrical lullaby by Benjamin Godard, was created in 2011 for the ground-breaking contemporary Hubbard Street Dance in Chicago.

Completing the line-up is a new classical work, Wayward, by young Canadian dancer and choreographer Kiara Flavin, who joined the RNZB in 2018.
