Ballet dancer Sir Jon Trimmer and actor Helen Moulder, have combined their talents with Australian director Sue Rider, in a unique combination of drama and dance.
“In the dance of life Sylvia has two left feet, but Karpovsky has arrived to tutor her in hope and grace. Years ago, Sylvia travelled the world and its greatest ballet theatres; now she lives alone in a house filled with photographs of her favourite dancer and boxes of her daughter’s unwanted possessions. Sylvia knows all the dances and has all the moves in her head, but is afraid to step out. Then the great dancer Alexander Karpovsky – she has seen him dance 127 times – turns up mysteriously in her lonely room and breaks through her brittle cocoon.”
“An extraordinary new work full of humour, delight, drama and surprise, Meeting Karpovsky is an enchanting play. I can’t remember when I last saw a production this heart-warming. I’m still smiling.” – NZ Listener
“Strikes a unique chord – a must-see” – The Press
“Delivers the kind of rewards that only live theatre can offer” – NBR
