A vanguard production for those who hunger to see powerfully visceral dancers deviate into unknown artistic territory.

Marvel over Alberta Ballet Company Artists as they dominate the stage in this exciting triple bill that includes both a world premiere and an Alberta premiere.

 

de.Vi.ate offers up a choreographic delight for fans of contemporary works in an evening of three contrasting modern ballets, choreographed by the most compelling voices of our time. 

 

de.Vi.ate showcases two hours of cutting edge, high octane choreography wrapped in riveting multimedia spectacle. It’s an exploration of the physicality of dance in a program true to Alberta Ballet’s vision of creating the most exciting live dance experiences found anywhere in Canada. 

 

CAELESTIS 

CHOREOGRAPHY: Jean Grand-Maître
MUSIC: Andrew Staniland

Caelestis, originally commissioned by the National Arts Center for Canada’s sesquicentennial, is a mind-bending dance ritual featuring Alberta Ballet’s first-ever Juno nominated orchestral score composed by Alberta’s own Andrew Staniland. Fusing music, dance and the projections of Alberta-based, Oscar-nominated filmmakers Wendy Tilby and Amanda Forbis, Caelestis explores our diminishing humanity in an ever-expanding technological landscape.

 

FUTURELAND
CHOREOGRAPHY: Wen Wei Wang  
MUSIC: Infamous/Original Soundtrack from the Video Game

Acclaimed Choreographer Wen Wei Wang continues the futurist theme with Futureland, a piece inspired by the aesthetics of contemporary video game art and music.

 

A WORLD PREMIERE
CHOREOGRAPHY: Christopher Anderson

Associate Artistic Director, Christopher Anderson, completes the program with an inspired new creation which punctuates classical dance with athletisism and contemporary movement. 

 
 
 
 
 
A powerful piece characterized by the exceptionally
physical movement (that is Grand-Maître’s forte).
