About

Choreographed by world-renowned Australian dancer and choreographer Meryl Tankard, this show is composed of the two intertwined narratives of the great Russian ballerina Olga Spessivtzeva, and a young contemporary dancer inspired by Meryl Tankard’s and Natalia Osipova’s own experiences training as a dancer. The work explores the joys and triumphs of being a great dancer along with the hard work, dedication, and pain of what it takes to become a ballerina. The first half showcases her breathtaking technical prowess along with her flair for comedy, looking back wryly on her early days of studying ballet. In the second half, the work moves inexorably to a powerful, tragic denouement.
