LEHENDA Ukrainian Dance Company is thrilled to announce the international tour of its new dance production
A fairytale of love, loss …..and a mysterious blue fox
KAZKA is a fairytale of love, loss ... and a mysterious blue fox. An original folk ballet inspired by Ukrainian fairytales, KAZKA has been created by Melanie Moravski Dechnicz, one of only two Australian-born recipients of the 'Merited Artist of Ukraine' award. Together with her creative artistic team, Melanie presents a new and unique full-length folk ballet that captivates and engages young and old alike. It's a tale of love, betrayal and supernatural spirits, where woodland creatures dance in the moonlight and beautiful young maidens toss garlands of flowers into a river, wondering from whence their lovers would appear.
KAZKA is an exciting and innovative production, performed by a stellar cast of 40 outstanding dancers. Lehenda's recent Australian and North American tours have seen sold out theatres, with standing ovations after every show. Featuring high-energy dancing and traditional Cossack acrobatics by Australia's premier Ukrainian dance ensemble, Kazka is spell-binding!
