Ballet: Provocative and graceful works


by JOHN DALY-PEOPLES
the NZ National Business Review

The Royal New Zealand Ballet's Tutus on Tour show is an inspired programme of four dances that not only presents an appealing range of dance styles but also allows the company to show off its exceptional dancing skills.

The four works, ranging from the classical to the contemporary, explore various aspects of love and sensuality from the sedate Sleeping Beauty to the raunchy, tango-inspired Si Supieras.

Ballet: Dancing with vampires
by JOHN DALY-PEOPLES for the NZ National Business Review

As Dracula, Douglas McCubbin is a complex figure, highlighted by his two costumes, one a tightfitting black masculine outfit, the other a flaring bold red gown. He presents an androgynous character drawn to both males and females.

His seamlessly lithe dancing with darting wolverine steps and reptilian movements gave him an eerie quality: part man, part beast and part spectre.

pellbound to Dracula
by BERNADETTE RAE for the NZ National Business Review

Then Dracula, Michael Pink's stunning piece of Gothic dance theatre, returned. And Purcell, who had not been tempted by previous invitations from the RNZB to rejoin or guest with the company, fell under his spell.

Dracula at the Civic
by BERNADETTE RAE for the NZ National Business Review

The production values are all there, with bells on. And the youthful Royal New Zealand Ballet dancers make up for what they may lack in experience - in a work that requires at least as much theatrical nous as it does balletic technique - with a load of enthusiasm for the task at hand.
