World Premiere – Ballet BC 2011

Petite Cérémonie

Medhi Walerski

Humorous and thought provoking, Petite Cérémonie is a dazzling showcase of movement and ideas that features the talents of our company of artists. Commissioned for Ballet BC in 2011, Walerski creates a sensitive and episodic dialogue about relationships inspired by the concept of 'life in a box.' He is known for creations that are "out of this world...a dreamlike experience."

1.2 World Premiere

New Work

Emily Molnar

To celebrate her 10th season as Artistic Director, Emily Molnar collaborates with the artists of Ballet BC to create a daring yet intimate landscape that brings her signature expressive style in conversation with the rhythm of the blues. With each of her new works there lies a boldness in craft and a deep sense of connection between the idea and the artist: "The choreographic process continues to enthrall and humble me with each and every attempt."

1.3 Canadian Premiere

Enemy in the Figure

William Forsythe

William Forsythe continues to galvanize the dance world with his innovative thinking: "if dance only does what we assume it can do, it will expire." Created in 1989, Enemy in the Figure pushed 20th century contemporary ballet to new extremes. A dynamic theatrical display, chaos edges on the unknown as shadow images unexpectedly emerge against the driving score by long-time collaborator, Dutch composer Thom Willems. Ballet BC is proud to bring this thrilling masterwork to Vancouver.
