A Grand Theatre Presents performance.
An Evening of Three Leading Voices in Contemporary Dance Presented by Ballet BC.
Founded in 1986 and led by Artistic Director Emily Molnar, Ballet BC is an internationally acclaimed collaborative and interactive contemporary ballet company that is a leader and resource in the creation, production and education of contemporary ballet. Bold and innovative, the company's distinctive style and approach has helped the company make a unique and valuable contribution to the development of dance and art.
3 Exceptional Female Choreographers Anchor this Triple Bill:
16+ A Room: Inspired by the writings of Jeannette Winterson and Emily Dickinson, this compelling work displays Molnar's unique choreographic language through a complex study of time, transition, and stillness, where the space between is as important as the space occupied, where one is left with the feeling of both liberty and disappearance.
Bill: Ballet BC is thrilled to work with Tel Aviv-based Sharon Eyal, one of the hottest choreographers today. Working with frequent collaborators Gai Behar and Ori Lichtik in Bill, Eyal combines dance, music, and design into an instantly recognizable whole of raw, unexpected beauty created with equal parts ebb and flow.
Solo Echo: Inspired by two sonatas for cello and piano by Brahms - creative touchstones for the artist throughout her career - and the poem "Lines for Winter" by Mark Strand, Crystal Pite continues her lifelong artistic exploration of tension and its resolution. Solo Echo moves from aggression to yearning, from the individual to the collective, travelling the pathways from conflict to acceptance.
