Re-discover Ballet BC in its triumphant return to the Jubilee stage after a 10-year hiatus, showcasing premiere Canadian talent in this tantalizing triple bill.

With its fresh take on a traditional art form, brilliantly fusing ballet and modern dance, the company’s provocative choreography has exploded onto the world stage to great acclaim.


Ballet BC’s Artistic Director, Emily Molnar C.M., has been hailed one of Canada’s “new generation of ballet sensations”, as she has steered the company into a golden era of innovation and collaboration since 2009.


Program consists of:


MUSIC: Johannes Brahms


Inspired by two Brahms sonatas for cello and piano, creative personal touchstones for the artist throughout her career, and the poem “Lines for Winter” by Mark Strand, Crystal Pite continues her lifelong artistic exploration of tension and its resolution. Solo Echo moves from aggression to yearning, from the individual to the collective, travelling the pathways from conflict to acceptance.


CHOREOGRAPHY: William Forsythe

MUSIC: Thom Willems


Enemy in the Figure is a dark and thrilling poem about vision and perception, form and chaos. Light—as integral to the performance as its choreography—intensifies the ephemeral beauty of the movement.


In a universe alternately frenetic and calm, Enemy in the Figure presents a non-narrative of mystery and urgency, isolation and connection, the mechanical and the human: dance as a medium for infinite possibilities.


A new experience for even the most seasoned patrons, Ballet BC’s exalted and exquisite dancers will shatter your assumptions of what ballet can be.


CHOREOGRAPHY: Medhi Walerski

MUSIC: Selections by Mozart, Puccini, Rogers & Hart and Vivaldi


Originally choreographed for Ballet BC in 2011, this work is a powerful and poetic full-company piece created by rising European dance star, Medhi Walerski. Intrigued by the idea of “life in a box”, Petite Cérémonie is a surprising and delightful mix of dance and theatre, full of imagery and adventure.
