BALLET BC | TRIPLE-BILL
For its third appearance at Danse Danse, Ballet BC brings together three leading choreographers with distinctive signatures: Sharon Eyal, Crystal Pite and Medhi Walerski. An amazing triple bill!
Since Medhi Walerski took over as artistic director in 2020, Ballet BC has continued to build on its momentum. Always exemplary of the best in dance, this Vancouver-based company with its 13 top-level dancers has gone from strength to strength.
Sharon Eyal offers “Bedroom Folk,” one of Ballet BC’s most successful touring productions. This spectacular piece is an intense and meticulously synchronized work set to Ori Lichtik’s repetitive electronic pulses. “The Statement,” a delicious dialogue between speech and movement, is pure Crystal Pite, an uplifting and inextricable imbroglio where four dancers gather around a large table to reveal power relationships and games. And finally, Medhi Walerski’s “GARDEN,” a bouquet of music and dance inspired by Camille Saint-Saëns’ “Quintet in A minor, Op. 14,” is a wonderful piece that conveys a gentle melancholy.
