Venus Rising

Royal New Zealand Ballet

Twyla Tharp is one of the world’s greatest living choreographers. In Waterbaby Bagatelles, watch as 27 dancers leap and spin across the stage in an ever-changing ocean of light.

Alice Topp’s award-winning Aurum is inspired by the Japanese art of kintsugi, the practice of mending cracks in ceramics with gold, celebrating the beauty of the broken.

Venus Rising is completed by two works by leading international choreographers, Andrea Schermoly and Dunedin-born, Auckland-based Sarah Foster-Sproull.

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. Don’t miss the Royal New Zealand Ballet’s powerful new programme,
