Ballet BC Program 3

Celebrate the spring, the season, and the spirit of dance with these three amazing works:

16+ a room
Choreography: Emily Molnar; Music: Dirk P. Haubrich
Enter 16+ a room. Emily Molnar, Ballet BC’s Artistic Director, has created a dynamic world for 16 dancers set to a driving musical landscape by German composer Dirk Haubrich. 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. The Dance Current says, “16+ a room is incredibly seductive… a powerful concentration of artistic vision.”

Choreography: Sharon Eyal, Gai Behar; Music: Ori Lichtik
Ballet BC is thrilled to work with Tel Aviv-based Sharon Eyal, one of the hottest choreographers today. Former Resident Choreographer of the Batsheva Dance Company and now Artistic Director of her own company, L-E-V, Eyal’s signature style and daring, sensual language requires of dancers an intricate and precise expression of the body. 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. Premiered by Batsheva Dance Company, Bill showcases Eyal’s trademark shifts from large group to smaller ensemble; which in turn morph into breathtaking solos.

I and I am You
Choreography: Jorma Elo; Music: J.S. Bach, Robert Schumann
Finnish-born choreographer Jorma Elo’s 2011 debut with Ballet BC was met with thunderous applause. So naturally, we invited him back to create this work, first seen in 2013. Featuring Elo’s signature virtuosic vocabulary and lightning-fast musicality interspersed with moments of enormous intimacy and tenderness, I and I am You demonstrates why Elo is one of the most sought-after choreographers today, with commissions by companies the world over. The Georgia Straight described I and I am You as possessing “the warmth and force of some strangely beautiful chinook.”

Program 3 is at the Queen Elizabeth Theatre May 12-May 14, 2016 with performances at 8:00pm. Tickets can be purchased through Ticketmaster at 1-855-985-2787 (855-985-ARTS) or online.
