Le Sacré

Le Sacre: A Circus and Ballet Ensemble Collaboration from 14-23 July 2018 is co-directed by NICA's Movement and Performance Coordinators Zebastian Hunter and Meredith Kitchen and The Australian Ballet School's Artistic Teacher and Resident Choreographer, Simon Dow. It features 18 second year circus performers from NICA and 26 level seven ballet students from The Australian Ballet School. They will be performing an account of dynamism, risk, supreme athleticism and sublime technical physicality in a tale of superstition and sacrifice, inspired by the narrative of Nijinsky and Stravinsky's The Rite of Spring (1913).

The first collaboration of its kind in Australian performance history, this is a premiere event between the two organisations. It'll integrate contemporary choreographic explorations using balletic and diverse dance language with circus acts including Skipping Ropes, Chinese Pole, Roue Cyr, Tissue, Hula Hoops, Group Acrobatics and Tightwire. Not one to be missed, it's here to delight all ages, so bring the whole family and all your friends to witness the bringing together of these two art forms.
