At the Queen Elizabeth Theatre
Ballet BC presents Program 1
BUSK Choreography Aszure Barton
“The word ‘busk’ comes from the Spanish root word ‘buscar’, meaning ‘to seek’. In BUSK, intellect, candour, and sheer physicality establish an honest connection with the audience. Through BUSK, we return to the ecstasy of pure movement, something that makes you feel completely moved.” —Aszure Barton
Edmonton-born, internationally renowned choreographer Aszure Barton transports us into the world of busking to elevate the beauty and grace that exist in the struggles of everyday life. Set to an atmospheric score, Barton’s dynamic choreographic language moves the dancers through a poetic, grounded sensibility transporting audiences to an intimate space.
B.R.I.S.A. Choreography Johan Inger
“…Johan Inger loves absurdist touches, offbeat props, and earthy, all-too-human movement and emotion.”
We are pleased to welcome back B.R.I.S.A. by Johan Inger to entice our intellect and captivate our senses by exploring themes of awakening and change. One of today’s most distinguished dance makers, Inger’s choreographies have won numerous prestigious awards and are featured in major international companies.
