This biannual favourite sees the Royal New Zealand Ballet’s 32 dancers divided into two groups, one touring the North Island and one touring the South Island. Travelling the length and breadth of New Zealand, every two years this innovative “road trip” presents an opportunity to enjoy a selection of dance works, from classical to contemporary. Each tour is different and this year the tour will showcase five works.

Mysterious and sexy, Christopher Hampson’s Salterello is a breathtaking piece. Taking inspiration from Giovanni Boccaccio’s masterpiece, Decameron, this piece was first performed by the RNZB in 2001. Dressed in shimmering silver and black, the dancers change mood and pace seamlessly from subdued elegance to explosive energy in a heartbeat.

Garry Stewart’s Currently Under Investigation is a fusion of dance styles. Energetic and challenging, the work stems from a classical base but mixes in a contemporary context with electrifying results.

Now based overseas, former Royal New Zealand Ballet dancer Andrew Simmons returns to premiere his work Through to You. Created last year, the work takes its inspiration from the music piece, Spiegel Im Spiegel, which loosely translates to “mirror in the mirror”.

Holberg Suite, choreographed by Greg Horsman,will explore themes of speed and precision and showcase the strength and beauty of our dancers. It puts the “tutu” into Tutus on Tour.

The programme will close with Koo Koo Ka Choo, a fun, upbeat work about different stages of love, choreographed by RNZB dancers Brendan Bradshaw and Catherine Eddy. The dancers were inspired by the enduring music of John Lennon and Paul McCartney and songs featured in the piece include Help, All My Loving, I Want to Hold Your Hand, Come Together and All You Need Is Love.
