This evening by Ballet BC Resident Choreographer Cayetano Soto, a vibrant voice in contemporary ballet, launches the season with four works that display a unique range of creativity and originality throughout his choreographic career. “Like a Pedro Almodovar film, Soto subverts beauty to convey something else.”

1.1 World Premiere

New Work

Choreography
Cayetano Soto

To launch the season, Soto will create a new work for the full company that will showcase his integrated vision as choreographer, costume, and lighting designer in a work that will surprise and delight audiences.

Work
1.2 Canadian Premiere

Fugaz

Choreography
Cayetano Soto

Originally created in 2007 for Ballet Theatre Munich, this work is inspired in part by the illness and death of Soto’s father. This hauntingly beautiful work for six dancers is a tribute to the complexity of life conveyed through an intimate portrait of the female voice, set to a score of Armenian sacred songs of the 20th century.

Work
1.3 Canadian Premiere

Sortijas

Choreography
Cayetano Soto

This dynamic duet with music by American born singer-songwriter Lhasa de Sela was made for Ballet Hispanico in 2013. The piece is a captivating conversation that comments on the circular ties of relationships that bind us together.

Work
1.4 World Premiere

New Work

Choreography
Cayetano Soto

An astonishing architect of movement and space, Soto commands his audiences to dive into intriguing worlds of curiosity and discovery with his choreography. This world premiere will use as a starting point Conrazoncorazon, a critically acclaimed work created in 2015 for the Theaterhaus Stuttgart/Gauthier Dance Company. The work is described as a “madcap ensemble piece, full to the brim with virtuosity and surprise that rapidly moves through a vibrant and mercurial realm of the senses with joy and enchantment.” Soto’s explosive choice of music for this work was selected to stir the imagination and lift the spirit.
