Natalia Osipova triple bill performs to standing ovation at Auckland Arts Festival
The Osipova team left London for Auckland last week to perform the triple bill at the ninth annual Auckland Arts Festival. The show consists of works choreographed by Sidi Larbi Cherkaoui, Russell Maliphant, and Arthur Pita and Natalia dances in all three. She is joined on stage by James O’Hara and Jason Kittelberger for Sidi Larbi Cherkaoui’s trio and by Sergei Polunin for the duets by Russell Maliphant and Arthur Pita.
After one of the performances Natalia, Sergei, Jason, and James were joined on stage by Auckland Arts Festival’s Artistic Director Carla van Zon for a post-show talk.
The show received some fantastic views from New Zealand’s press. Check one of them out here.

Natalia Osipova leaps into the city that never sleeps
Natalia Osipova and Friends dazzled the big apple with four performances at New York City Center. As Broadway World write, “ripples of applause” broke out in the audience as they watched Natalia and Sergei “believably embody a 21st century movement aesthetic [in a way that] was both astonishing and heartening.”

Crowds O-trip-ova to see Natalia Osipova in Edinburgh
Touring began for Natalia Osipova and Guests with three performances at Edinburgh International Festival over the weekend. The show, which features new work choreographed by Sidi Larbi Cherkaoui, Russell Maliphant, and Arthur Pita was performed to tremendous success and packed audiences.
Na-star-lia in your eyes
Sadler’s Wells was graced with Natalia Osipova’s debut contemporary performance last week. The show featured three brand new especially commissioned works from world-renowned choreographers Sidi Larbi Cherkaoui, Russell Maliphant, and Arthur Pita.
The audience were moved and mesmerised as Natalia bedazzled in Sidi Larbi’s trio with James O’Hara and Jason Kittelberger, before dancing two duets by Maliphant and Pita with Sergei Polunin. As The Guardian put it they are: “dancers of rare individual talent whose offstage love affair brings a startling extra wattage to their onstage partnership”.
Don’t worry if you missed out on this run as Natalia is back in September for more dazzling performances of the same show. Get the tickets while you can – click here.

Preparations are in full swing for Natalia Osipova’s new show with Sadler’s Wells – due to premiere at the London theatre on 29 June until 3 July. This brand new production will show Natalia’s experiments with contemporary dance as she searches for new ways to express herself artistically.
The show is made up of three new pieces choreographed by Sadler’s Wells’ Associate Artists Sidi Larbi Cherkaoui and Russell Maliphant, alongside Opera House regular Arthur Pita. If their three new pieces aren’t mind blowingly exciting enough – then how about the fact that Natalia will be joined on stage by Sergei Polunin for these world premieres. This will be the first time they have ever danced together in the UK.
