Royal New Zealand Ballet to perform at Nottingham Playhouse

THE Royal New Zealand Ballet will be performing the UK premiere of their new show, From Here to There at Nottingham Playhouse on 19th July at 8pm.

The company is known for its fresh and artistically adventurous programmes, and this performance is a trio of contemporary works choreographed by Javier de Frutos, Jorma Elmo and Andrew Simmons.

The first, entitled Plan to A, is an abstract work, while a Song in the Dark, looks at love, missed opportunities and finding beauty in the ordinary. The evening finishes with Banderillero, a dance set to powerful rhythms which takes its name from a bullfighter that teases the bull.

This performance at the Nottingham Playhouse is the only East Midlands date and will mark the start of a national tour for company.

• Tickets are priced between £14 and £20. For details contact the Box Office on (0115) 9419419 or visit www.nottinghamplayhouse.co.uk.
