Ballet BC continues its season with Trace, a triple-bill that includes both a Canadian and world premiere, plus the return of an audience favourite. Here are five reasons we think you should go:
1. Set to the intimate “Duo for two Violins” by Luciano Berio, the Canadian premiere of William Forsythe’s workwithinwork is an example of his iconic style that uses craft and imagination to interpret space with sophistication and curiosity.
2. One of Italy’s most dynamic choreographers, Walter Matteini, presents the world premiere of his New Work in which he plays with the light and dark sides of human nature.
3. Vancouver audiences will once again get to experience Medhi Walerski’s Petite Cérémonie, a mix of dance and theatre that first captivated the city back in 2011. Originally created for Ballet BC, the piece has gone on to delight audiences across North America.
4. The collective work of these three international choreographers spans major ballet companies from around the world.
5. We believe it when Ballet BC Artistic Director Emily Molnar says the Trace program reinforces the company’s commitment to delivering unique experiences to Vancouver audiences.
Trace plays the Queen Elizabeth Theatre (650 Hamilton St, Vancouver) March 26-28. Visit http://balletbc.com for tickets and information.
