Ballet BC’s 2014-2015 Season

Ballet BC begins its 2014–15 season with No. 29 – a program marking the company’s 29th season and 29th new creation under the artistic leadership of Emily Molnar.

No. 29 features the World Premiere of White Act by Spanish-born choreographer Fernando Hernando Magadan, the Ballet BC premiere of An Instant by Vancouver-born choreographer Lesley Telford and the reprisal of the explosive audience favourite A.U.R.A. by Italy’s Jacopo Godani.

A.U.R.A.(Anarchist Unit Related to Art)
Ballet BC Premiere: November 2012
Choreography: Jacopo Godani
Music: 48nord
Set to a dynamic electronic acoustic score by German duo 48nord, A.U.R.A. is sleek and startling in its relentless intensity, showcasing Jacopo Godani’s explosive and kinetic style. The provocative nature of A.U.R.A. combined with its virtuosic physicality proved highly successful with audiences and critics in Vancouver and abroad.

White Act
World Premiere
Choreography: Fernando Hernando Magadan
Spanish-born choreographer Fernando Magadan, a new voice in contemporary dance, reveres beauty, passion and nature, as well as the supernatural, and explores “…our constant attraction to everything that confronts and challenges the laws of physics against our mortal nature.” In this new work, he uses his clear artistic voice to create a complex, emotionally abundant world.

An Instant
Ballet BC Premiere
Choreography: Lesley Telford
Music: Michael Gordon, Weather
Inspired by Wislawa Szymborska’s poem Could Have, Vancouver-born choreographer and dancer Lesley Telford investigates “…the moment you wake up when chance, circumstance and unpredictability interrupt our planned lives. A critical moment may shift our direction in a split second.” Set to Weather by Michael Gordon, Telford’s work is beautifully poignant in its exploration of the fragile balance and illusion of life’s stability.

No. 29 plays the Queen Elizabeth Theatre at 8:00pm November 6th to November 8th, 2014. Tickets range from $30.00 to $80.00 (including service charges) and can be purchased through Ticketmaster at 1-855-985-2787 (855-985-ARTS) or online via Ticketmaster.
