About Royal New Zealand Ballet - Bold Moves

Choreographers from three continents, sharing New Zealand stages this winter.

George Balanchine's Serenade: 28 dancers transported by Tchaikovsky's Serenade for Strings, moving through time and space in perfect patterns, supremely structured yet somehow free.

William Forsythe's Artifact II: a blast of neon and strobe. Primary colours, Bach spliced with electronica, and a larger than life American athleticism.

These two iconic works bookend a powerful new commission by Andrea Schermoly: Stand to Reason. Drama, drive, pulsating beauty - movement inspired by the tenacity of the bold women who won the vote.

You don't want to miss a step.
