Red is a presentation of three dance works including Abhisheka . Set to John Psathas’ evocative score of the same name, this abstract work is inspired by the ritualistic and sacrificial cleansing of the chosen one. First performed by the Royal New Zealand Ballet in 2004 New Zealand born choreographer Adrian Burnett has created a mystical and thought-provoking work. Tracy Grant Lord’s stunning designs are reminiscent of a giant golden chalice.
The other works on the programme are Paquita set to a score from Ludwig Minkus and Plan to A to music by Heinrich von Biber.
