Ian Spink (2009)
The tragic story of a Russian puppet brought to life by a wizard's enchanted flute is given a twenty-first century twist by Australian-British choreographer and director, Ian Spink and Greek born designer Yannis Thavoris.
Spink has a real knack of breathing new life into classic stories, putting his own fresh slant onto some of the most well-established works. He directed Private Lives for The Citizens Theatre, L'enfant et les Sortileges and L'heure Epagnole for Opera Zuid, Maastricht and choreographed A Tragedy of Fashion for Rambert Dance Company.
