World Premiere of Pacific opens in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil.
Friday November 11 saw the world premiere of Phillip’s latest work Pacific to a rapturous standing ovation.
Commissioned by Companhia de Ballet da Cidade de Niterói and presented at the historic Teatro Municipal de Niterói, this exquisite production features all 23 company dancers from CBCN on stage. This production included a remarkable cultural collaboration with Brazilian Samba School, G.R.E.S. Acadêmicos do Grande Rio who collaborated on and crafted the exotic set design. Pacific is by far one of Philip’s most spectacular dance creations, navigating the spectacle of Carnival and colourful motifs of South Pacific iconography all woven into an impression of Brazil. Pacific plays until November 20 as part of the triple bill program Escaleno.
This project has been genrously supported by the Australian Government through Council on Australia and Latin America Relations (COALAR) and Creative Victoria.
