Aivilo premiers this Thursday at National Theatre
From the visionary mind of director Sven-Eric Müller comes AIVILO, an original and contemporary Namibian ballet.
Aivilo, a doe-eyed youngster, is confronted by life’s most daring temptations. Despite her efforts to resist, she finds herself entangled with the other worldly manifestations of evil. Joined, by her curious brother, Lilo, Aivilo explores the continuing tug-of-war of good versus evil in this visual fantasy epic set to enthrall audiences.
The protagonist Aivilo will be played by the incomparable Tuli Shityuwete and Lilo will be portrayed by exciting newcomer West Uarije. Choreographed by Sven-Eric Muller and featuring the musical stylings of Lize Ehlers, AIVILO is set be a production the likes of which the Namibian stage has not seen before.
Director, Sven-Eric Mϋller, is no stranger to big stage productions; as a trained dancer, Mϋller dazzled the stage in modern renditions of The Rocky Horror Picture Show, Funny Girl and Westside Story in South Africa. In October 2018 he returned to Namibia and delighted audiences in Sandy Rudd’s musical, ‘I am John’ which centred around the life and times of the late Namibian artist John Mufangejo.
Put together by Haus of Müller, in conjunction with the National Arts Council, AIVILO will premiere at the National Theatre of Namibia (NTN) on the 22nd of November and will run till the 24th of November 2018.
