Le Sacré: A Circus and Ballet Ensemble Collaboration

Le Sacré: A Circus and Ballet Ensemble Collaboration
14-23 June 2018
Co-Directed by Zebastian Hunter, Meredith Kitchen and Simon Dow

In the first collaboration of its kind in Australian performance history, the National Institute of Circus Arts and The Australian Ballet School come together to present an innovative work combining ballet and circus, in the electric Le Sacré. The production is the premiere collaboration between the two organisations.

Featuring 18 second year circus performers from NICA and 26 level seven ballet students from The Australian Ballet School, Le Sacré is an account of dynamism, risk, supreme athleticism and sublime technical physicality. This is a tale of superstition and sacrifice, inspired by the narrative of Nijinsky and Stravinsky's The Rite of Spring (1913).

The performance integrates contemporary choreographic explorations using balletic and diverse dance language with a myriad of circus acts including Skipping Ropes, Chinese Pole, Roué Cyr, Tissue, Hula Hoops, Group Acrobatics and Tightwire.

Bringing together these two art forms are NICA's Movement and Performance Coordinators, Zebastian Hunter and Meredith Kitchen and with The Australian Ballet School's Artistic Teacher and Resident Choreographer, Simon Dow.
