Ballet BC Presents Program 2

  • February 28 - March 02
  • Queen Elizabeth Theatre
  • 650 Hamilton Street at Georgia
    Vancouver, BC

2.1 Ballet BC Premiere – 2011
1st Flash
Choreography - Jorma Elo
Originally commissioned for Nederlands Dans Theater in 2003, we are excited to bring back Jorma Elo’s commanding 1st Flash. This “virtuosic mind-blower” premiered in Vancouver in 2011 and was an immediate success. An ambitious piece set to Jean Sibelius’ inspired violin concerto, six dancers create harmony of sound and movement as the music interrupts their silence and charges it with beauty and musicality.

2.2 World Premiere
New Work
Choreography - Adi Salant
Former Co-Artistic Director of Batsheva Dance Company, Adi Salant, delivers a mesmerizing world with her choreography. Anchored by a deep sense of presence, her compelling work balances explosive physicality and a delicate sensibility of the unpredictable. Ballet BC is honoured to be the first company in North America to commission a new creation by this powerful, emerging dance maker.

2.3 World Premiere – Ballet BC 2016
Choreography - Cayetano Soto
Wonderfully amusing, Schachmatt builds on Soto’s applauded Conrazoncorazon, created in 2015 for the Theaterhaus Stuttgart/Gauthier Dance Company. Filling the senses with delight, vibrant movement along with eccentric jockey-esque costumes, a nostalgic score and inspired lighting integrate his vision and talents as choreographer, costume and lighting designer. An undeniable “nonstop parade of fun” from an important voice in international dance.
