Twyla Tharp is one of the world’s greatest living choreographers. In Waterbaby Bagatelles, 27 dancers leap and spin across the stage in an ever-changing ocean of light; the music flowing seamlessly as groups of dancers sparkle and glow.
Meditative and moving, Alice Topp’s award-winning Aurum is inspired by the Japanese art of kintsugi, the practice of mending cracks in precious ceramics with gold, creating a new whole which celebrates the beauty of the broken.
Venus Rising is completed by two new works made specially for the Royal New Zealand Ballet by leading international choreographers whose earlier works for the company have been acclaimed by audiences and loved by dancers. Andrea Schermoly creates a work for the full company inspired by the 250th anniversary of Beethoven’s birth.
Sarah Foster-Sproull, the RNZB’s new Choreographer in Residence for 2020/21, will create her third work for the RNZB, inspired by the baroque ‘La Folia’.
Four extraordinary works, by inspirational and internationally renowned choreographers, capture the spirit and power of Venus Rising – brightest of stars, herald of the dusk and of the dawn – in Wellington this winter.
