My review of the Royal New Zealand Ballet’s U.S. debut appeared in the Chronicle today:

“It was a small but curious dance crowd that turned out Friday night for the U.S. debut of a likable, rather curious ballet company. The Royal New Zealand Ballet is a versatile troupe of 32 dancers who tirelessly tour their homeland with an eclectic repertoire of cutting-edge commissions and classic story ballets. But not a tutu was to be seen at the Yerba Buena Center for the Arts Theater, where the New Zealanders had a short run as part of the San Francisco International Arts Festival.

Festival founder Andrew Wood imported the company on the strength of two works by Venezuelan-born Javier de Frutos, the former bad boy of British dance who once bared his bum in angst-filled solos but now creates ensemble pieces of tight structuralism and striking theatricality. ”
