Made to Move
Javier du Frutos, Ethan Stiefel and Andrew Simmons
Presented in association with the Royal New Zealand Ballet
Venezuelan choreographer Javier de Frutos, whose work continues to challenge the boundaries between ballet, contemporary dance and music, creates a new piece inspired by the Pacific. De Frutos’ 2007 West End production of Cabaret received an Olivier Award and his recent collaboration with Pet Shop Boys, The Most Incredible Thing, enjoyed two sell-out seasons at London’s Sadler’s Wells.
RNZB Artistic Director Ethan Stiefel creates his first original work for the company – a spirited comedy set in a Bavarian beer hall. Expect laughter, Lederhosen and virtuoso technique, as the full company take up their steins and whirl away to the waltzes and polkas of Johann Strauss II.
Former RNZB dancer Andrew Simmons, creates the eagerly-awaited follow-up to 2010’s haunting A Song in the Dark, a hit with audiences around New Zealand and with dance lovers in the UK and France on the company’s 2011 tour.
