This event has concluded.
Ballet BC is proud to present REACHING U, the company’s featured digital program of the adapted 2021 Season. This special evening will feature works by acclaimed duo Sharon Eyal and Gai Behar as well as Artistic Director Medhi Walerski. Audiences will experience the return of the spectacular and hypnotic Bedroom Folk —a percussive and deliciously punchy choreography in which movement, music, and light are equal protagonists — as well as the North American Premiere of GARDEN, a poetic and refined work set to music by French composer Camille Saint-Saëns.
“Mr. Walerski is a choreographer who makes clear, theatrical choices and seems deeply invested in conceptual coherence.” —Globe and Mail
Previously nominated by Dance Europe for Best Production, GARDEN is an elegant and sophisticated work inspired by Camille Saint-Saëns’ Piano Quintet in A minor, Op. 14. Through a series of duets, unison, and counterpoint, while reflecting the refined dialogue between strings and piano, the dancers shape the space physically in a pure and organic way.Work
“[Bedroom Folk] is a piece where Ballet BC can show its fierceness.” —The Georgia Straight
Ballet BC is thrilled to bring back Bedroom Folk from the esteemed collaborative duo and Vancouver audience favourite, Sharon Eyal and Gai Behar. Visually mesmerizing, a house beat pulses through an intoxicating space as dancers subtly move through this absorbing work in striking ways. An instant success with Vancouver audiences after its North American premiere in 2019, Bedroom Folk has since become a signature of Ballet BC’s touring repertoire across the globe.
