Event Details

RESCHEDULED FOR APRIL 8/9, 7:30PM AT BRUCE MASON CENTRE, TAKAPUNA

Join us for an exciting festival collaboration with a new New Zealand dance company – BalletCollective Aotearoa for a stimulating inaugural programme of proudly homegrown dance, music and design.

Subtle Dances is a trio of new work created by some of New Zealand’s most exciting choreographers: London-based Cameron McMillan (former dancer with Royal New Zealand Ballet, English National Ballet, Rambert), Loughlan Prior (Royal New Zealand Ballet) and Sarah Knox (Footnote New Zealand Dance, Black Grace).

Harnessing the energy and vivacity of ballet dancers trained here in Aotearoa, and starring the astonishing Abigail Boyle, the work engages in our unique creativity shaped by the country’s isolation and rugged landscape; our openness to new and immersive ideas through many cultural influences; and the innate curiosity of all New Zealanders.

We perform John Psathas’ work Helix, Claire Cowan’s Subtle Dances (NZTrio commission), and music by Rhian Sheehan, rearranged for piano ensemble by Ryan Youens.
