Comments 45 by Rebecca Bollwitt

Ballet BC presents Grace Symmetry in collaboration with Turning Point Ensemble from February 20th to February 22nd, 2014 at the Queen Elizabeth Theatre. Featuring live music by Turning Point Ensemble, Grace Symmetry includes World Premieres by Kevin O’Day and Medhi Walerski, plus the return of In Motion by Wen Wei Wang, an audience favourite from the 2010/11 dance season.

Ballet BC’s Artistic Director Emily Molnar says, “We are thrilled to present this collaboration with Turning Point Ensemble, one of Canada’s leading chamber orchestras, alongside three brilliant choreographers and the artists of Ballet BC. Both Kevin O’Day and Medhi Walerski return with two stunning new works, adding to the diversity of the Company’s repertoire as well as the reprisal of Wen Wei Wang’s gorgeous In Motion. All three pieces will be performed to live music and promise a spectacular treat for dance and music lovers alike.”

This World Premiere by American-born Kevin O’Day, Artistic Director of Kevin O’Day Ballett Nationaltheater Mannheim, couples his sophisticated understanding of music and movement with his creative spirit, inspiring daring, risk-taking dance that complements the innovative style and vision of both TPE and Ballet BC. For this creation, O’Day will work with New York-based composer and long-time collaborator John King on a new composition for the TPE orchestra. O’Day has danced with the Joffrey Ballet, Frankfurt Ballet, American Ballet Theatre, New York City Ballet and Baryshnikov’s White Oak Dance Project. He has created more than 50 works, including Face to Face which Ballet BC premiered in 2010.

Tickets for Grace Symmetry can be purchased through Ticketmaster at 1-855-985-2787 (855-985-ARTS) or online and range in price from $22.25 to $70.00 (plus service charges).
