The Royal New Zealand Ballet presents...
Solace

McGregor’s movement… speaks of compassion and anger, happiness and anxiety, tenderness and tears.”
Debra Craine on Infra, The Times, November 2008.

Winter 2024 brings a trio of premieres to stages in Wellington, Auckland and Christchurch as the Royal New Zealand Ballet presents Solace: dance to feed your soul, with new and recent ballets by Wayne McGregor, Sarah Foster-Sproull and Alice Topp.

Britain’s Wayne McGregor is one of the most exciting choreographers on the world stage, and the New Zealand premiere of his Infra, created for London’s Royal Ballet in 2008, represents an artistic coup for the RNZB.

Choreographed for an ensemble of twelve uniquely gifted dancers at the height of their powers, and set to a slowly drifting, soulful score by Max Richter, Infra is a profoundly moving meditation on the loneliness, connections and consolations that lie beneath the teeming surface of the city. Julian Opie’s mesmerising LED artwork echoes the constant movement of the dancers below as a steady stream of anonymous figures walk purposefully towards destinations that are forever unknown.
