Radiating mystery and beauty, SWGS gives modern immediacy to classical ballet. Making its debut this season, the work is choreographed by expat Kiwi Cameron McMillan, and features costumes by renowned designer Karen Walker. Taking his cue from the ravishing score, McMillan’s ballet unfolds in a series of electrically-charged scenes played out before 50-year-old film footage of Stravinsky in New Zealand.
