KAZKA - A Fairytale

  • The Playhouse, Geelong Performing Arts Centre 50 Little Malop St Geelong, VIC, 3220 Australia (map)

By popular demand, Lehenda Ukrainian Dance Company brings KAZKA to Geelong, straight from it's hugely successful North American tour.

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 39 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, Australia's premier Ukrainian dance ensemble is bringing its spell-binding new production to Geelong for one night only.  This is one show definitely not to be missed!
