An op­por­tu­nity to meet Kar­povsky

Central Otago Mirror - - NEWS -

Ar­row­town, Cromwell and Ran­furly theatre go­ers have an op­por­tu­nity to meet Kar­povsky.

Sir Jon Trim­mer and He­len Moul­der star in Meet­ing Kar­povksy, a piece of theatre which mar­ries dance and drama.

Trim­mer’s danc­ing and Moul­der’s act­ing make mag­i­cal theatre, ac­cord­ing to re­views.

Part of Arts On Tour New Zealand, the pro­duc­tion is funded by Cre­ative NZ for stag­ing in ru­ral and smaller cen­tres around the coun­try so artists travel to their au­di­ences rather than the other way around.

The story is of a woman who is taught to dance by her hero.

Moul­der has been work­ing as an ac­tor/singer for four decades in New Zealand, Bri­tain and Australia. Her many roles in­clude Vir­ginia Woolf in Vita and Vir­ginia, and Vi­vian Bear­ing in Wit, for which she won Actress of the Year in the 2000 Welling­ton Theatre Awards.

Trim­mer has been a main­stay of the Royal New Zealand Ballet for 56 years.

The play is di­rected by Bris­banebased Sue Rider who has re­ceived 18 in­dus­try awards in Australia and New Zealand.
