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.
