In 16 + a room, Emily Molnar, Ballet BC’s Artistic Director, displays her unique choreographic language through a complex study of time, transition, and stillness, where the space between is as important as the space occupied, and one is left with the feeling of both liberty and disappearance.
With Solo Echo, globally celebrated choreographer and former Ballet BC company member Crystal Pite explores recurring themes of acceptance and loss—inspired by two sonatas for cello and piano by Brahms and the poem “Lines for Winter” by Mark Strand.
Finally, Tel Aviv-based Sharon Eyal and Gai Behar’s Bill is a daring piece showcasing Ballet BC dancers in intricate and precise expressions of the body combining dance, music, and design into an instantly recognizable whole—raw, unexpected beauty created with equal parts ebb and flow.
