Abhisheka

First performed by the RNZB in 2004 as part of the hugely successful Saltarello season, New Zealand-born choreographer Adrian Burnett has created a mystical and thought-provoking work. Set to John Psathas' evocative score of the same name, this abstract work is inspired by the ritualistic and sacrificial cleansing of the chosen one. Tracy Grant Lord's stunning designs are reminiscent of a giant golden chalice.
