Royal New Zealand Ballet - Cacti

February 2016

We’re excited to be deepening our association with the Royal New Zealand Ballet when we perform in their Speed of Light season during February/March 2016. We’ll be on stage alongside the dancers in the NZ premiere ofAlexander Ekman’s Cacti, a work that has taken the dance world by storm. 'Speed of Light' will be featured in the NZ Festival, and Auckland Arts Festival as well as touring to Christchurch and Dunedin.

Alexander Ekman’s Cacti has taken the dance world by storm since its premiere in The Hague in 2010. Combining daredevil virtuosity and split second timing with a playful wit, Cacti, in which the dancers of the RNZB will be joined onstage by the New Zealand String Quartet, is a celebration of physicality and the sheer joy of dance.

Here’s a taste of the experience in a video recording from Boston Ballet. View video
