This is the first time NICA's Collaboration With The Australian Ballet School directed by Zebastian Hunter, Meredith Kitchen and Simon Dow. Witness the first collaboration of its kind in Australian performance history, presenting a combined cast
of 18 circus performers and 26 ballet dancers in a glittering spectacle of artful physicality.
Le Sacré references elements from modern life drawn from electronic dance culture, fashion shows, beauty pageants and talent shows. This collaboration will integrate balletic and diverse dance language with a myriad of circus acts including skipping ropes, Chinese pole, roue Cyr, tissu, hula hoops, group acrobatics and tightwire.
Bringing together these two art forms are NICA’s Meredith Kitchen and Zebastian Hunter with The Australian Ballet School’s Artistic Teacher and Resident Choreographer, Simon Dow. Don’t miss your chance to behold this ensemble of elite performers who have spent years honing their skills as they prepare to enter their final year of study in 2019.
