Canada’s Ballet British Columbia present an exhilarating evening of breathtaking dance by three internationally celebrated female choreographers.
Recognised for their fresh creativity, this 18-strong company of dancers will astound UK audiences with their unique blend of cool, classical elegance and contemporary flair.
Inspired by the work of Jeanette Winterson and Emily Dickinson, 16 + a room, by artistic director Emily Molnar, sparks with explosive, fast-paced choreography that pushes the dancers to their athletic and technical limits.
Solo Echo by Olivier award-winning Sadler’s Wells Associate Artist and former Ballet BC dancer Crystal Pite, is a powerfully romantic work, shimmering in snowfall, and inspired by two Brahms’ sonatas for cello and piano.
Tel Aviv-based choreographer Sharon Eyal worked with Gai Behar and Ori Lichtik to create Bill, a daring piece of raw beauty that showcases the dancers’ extraordinary skill in a fantastic finale.
