At the Vancouver Playhouse
Joshua Beamish/Move The Company presents the world premiere of @giselle
A technology-infused re-imagining of the iconic ballet masterwork that examines the ways social media has leveraged an unexpected change on the nature of modern love and relationships.
Vancouver’s own award-winning Joshua Beamish brings his innovative choreographic vision to the Vancouver Playhouse, featuring an all-star lineup of some of North America’s finest ballet artists from American Ballet Theatre, The National Ballet of Canada, and Pennsylvania Ballet. This undeniably modern take on a beloved classic will explore our understandings of love, sex, and relationships in a world of dating apps, Snapchat stories, and Instagram. Using motion-captured digital projections and bold visual effects, this is Giselle re-imagined as you’ve never seen her before.
In response to unprecedented demand and sold out performances for the world premiere, Ballet BC returns to the iconic story Romeo + Juliet set to Sergei Prokofiev’s stunning score.MAR 4-7
