Choreography: Cayetano Soto
Which reality is going to be your truth? Haunting in its imagery and visceral in its execution, the world premiere of BEGINNING AFTER, created for Ballet BC in 2016, showcases Soto’s skill and artistry like never before. Caught between memory and truth, driving choreography set to Handel’s exquisite score explores the often ambiguous, murky space between the two. Both compellingly beautiful, male and female dissolve into being.
Choreography: Emily Molnar
Ballet BC’s Artistic Director Emily Molnar creates a new work in collaboration with acclaimed conductor Graeme Langager and Vancouver’s award-winning Phoenix Chamber Choir. Complex and sensate, the work reflects Molnar’s passion for pushing the boundaries of the expressive body. The music, Peteris Vasks’ atmospheric, wordless vocalise, Plainscapes, elegantly weaves through Molnar’s skillful choreography— creating a mesmerizing tapestry of voice and movement.
Choreography: Sharon Eyal & Gai Behar
Ballet BC is honoured to be the first Canadian dance company to work with Israeli choreographic sensation Sharon Eyal and collaborator Gai Behar. Former Resident Choreographer of the Batsheva Dance Company and now Artistic Director of her company, L.E.V., Sharon’s distinct style has put her on the map as one of the most sought-after voices in dance today. With daring and sensual choreography, Bill showcases Eyal’s signature shifts from large to smaller groups that morph into breathtaking solos. Bill is an intense, raw mix of dance, music, and design—creating a world unlike any other.
