This spectacular program from Ballet BC, under the new artistic direction of Medhi Walerski, features three distinct contemporary works by acclaimed Canadian and international choreographers Sharon Eyal and Gai Behar, Crystal Pite, and Medhi Walerski himself.
GARDEN, a tenderly magnificent and sophisticated piece choregraphed by Ballet BC’s Artistic Director, was inspired by Camille Saint-Saëns’ Piano Quintet in A minor, Op. 14.
Audiences will have the opportunity to experience Crystal Pite’s gripping and timely work The Statement, which was originally scheduled to tour with Nederlands Dans Theater in March 2020.
Finally, Bedroom Folk by Sharon Eyal and Gai Behar is a signature piece from Ballet BC’s global touring repertoire. In this percussive and deliciously punchy choreography, movement, music, and light are equal protagonists.
BONUS! Post-performance chat: Join us after the show on Thursday, November 25 for a special post-performance chat with Medhi Walerski to share your experience of the performance. The chat will take place in Southam Hall after the show.
