Ballet BC concludes its explosive 32nd season with a thrilling triple bill of cutting edge and inspired choreography. Program 3 features the return of Resident Choreographer Cayetano Soto’s hauntingly beautiful BEGINNING AFTER.

Ballet BC’s Artistic Director Emily Molnar welcomes acclaimed conductor, Graeme Langager, and the Phoenix Chamber Choir to collaborate on a world premiere. The evening’s inspiring program also features the much-anticipated return of Bill, by collaborators Sharon Eyal and Gai Behar.

Haunting in its imagery and visceral in its execution, BEGINNING AFTER, created for Ballet BC in 2016, showcases Cayetano Soto’s skill and artistry like never before. Caught between memory and truth, driving choreography set to Handel’s exquisite score, explores the often ambiguous, murky space between the two. Both compellingly beautiful, male and female dissolve into being.

In anticipation of Ballet BC’s Artistic Director Emily Molnar’s 10th Anniversary with the company, Molnar continues to investigate her work as a choreographer with the passionate and dedicated artists of Ballet BC. In the creation of this new work, Emily is collaborating with conductor Graeme Langager and Vancouver’s award-winning Phoenix Chamber Choir. Complex and sensate, the work reflects Molnar’s passion for pushing the boundaries of the expressive body. The music, Peteris Vasks’ atmospheric, wordless vocalise, Plainscapes, elegantly weaves through Molnar’s skillful choreography—creating a mesmerizing tapestry of voice and movement.

Ballet BC was honoured to be the first Canadian dance company to work with Israeli choreographic sensation Sharon Eyal and collaborator Gai Behar. Former Resident Choreographer of the Batsheva Dance Company and now Artistic Director of her company, L.E.V., Sharon’s distinct style has put her on the map as one of the most sought-after voices in dance today. With daring and sensual choreography, Bill showcases Eyal’s signature shifts from large to smaller groups that morph into breathtaking solos. Bill is an intense, raw mix of dance, music and design—creating a world unlike any other.

Program 3 is hot on the heels of Ballet BC’s Romeo + Juliet by choreographer Medhi Walerski which broke all tickets sales records and was the first sold out performance for the company in years. It was both an exhilarating and reaffirming experience for the company.

Program 3 plays the Queen Elizabeth Theatre at 8:00pm May 10-12, 2018. Tickets range from $35.00 to $100.00 (plus service charges) and can be purchased through Ticketmaster online or 1-855-985-2787 (855-985-ARTS).
