A ballerina will grace Wellington's Oriental Bay for the next nine days, dancing Swan Lake's The Dying Swan.
Lucky Wellingtonians first got to see the 10m artwork, named 'Swans' on Thursday night, when it debuted as part of The Performance Arcade, 2019.

Video artist Jeremy Brick worked with Royal NZ Ballet dancers Abigail Boyle and Sara Garbowski for the installation, which uses light projections onto a water fountain to create the stunning, seemingly 3D image.
The Performance Arcade is a free festival of arts in the Wellington Waterfront.
This year, visitors are guided on a 3km trail along the harbourside from the Railway station to Oriental Bay, ending at 'Swans'.
Organisers say the installation is best seen from the Oriental Bay rotunda, and will be on from 8:30pm until 11pm, from now until March 3, weather permitting.
