Artistic Director – Patricia Barker

Watch dancers from your national ballet company in a superb programme of contemporary works, including two that were commissioned to celebrate the 125th anniversary of women’s suffrage.

Penny Saunders’ 'So To Speak' celebrates the conversations wives and daughters dared to have behind the scenes of the public suffrage campaigns, illuminating the struggles that took place within the home.

Andrea Schermoly’s 'Stand to Reason' was inspired by the 1888 pamphlet ‘Ten Reasons Why The Women of New Zealand Should Vote’, and pays tribute to the strong women who stood up for their right to political participation.

The third work in the programme is the New Zealand premiere of 'Gleam', a lyrical work by Robyn Mineko Williams that explores the interactions between three couples in a series of fine duets.
