  • Central Cinema - 'The Heart Dances'.

Director Rebecca Tansley (Crossing Rachmaninoff) examines the Royal New Zealand Ballet adaptation of Jane Campion classic The Piano.

"Czech choreographer Jiří Bubeníček and his twin brother and designer, Otto are stars in the European dance world, creators of vital, innovative contemporary ballets. Rebecca Tansley follows them from Prague to Aotearoa as they take up an invitation from the Royal New Zealand Ballet to expand their adaptation, made in Germany in 2015, of Jane Campion’s film. Tansley’s documentary feasts on the sheer beauty of the Bubeníčeks’ work – the music, the theatricality, the costumes, the suite of achingly expressive pas de deux at the heart of the piece." (New Zealand International Film Festival)

99 mins | Rated PG | Documentary

Directed by Rebecca Tansley | Starring The Royal New Zealand Ballet, James Webster, Moss Te Ururangi Patterson, Otto Bubeníček, Jiří Bubeníček.
