Ballet BC is pleased to announce its first live performance since February, Re-Space, which will debut at The Polygon Gallery on November 20th and 21st. Accompanied by Belgian composer Adrien Cronet and Vancouver Symphony Orchestra’s Principal Cellist Henry Shapard, Ballet BC’s dancers will present an intimate yet physically distanced dance experience inspired by the idea of human connection, choreographed by Artistic Director Medhi Walerski and the Artists of the company.
“Our current global situation has emphasized a reflection on the human connection and a longing for the essence of live performance,” said Medhi Walerski. “How incredibly humbling it is to collaborate with The Polygon Gallery and the Vancouver Symphony Orchestra and to witness the endless creative possibilities of human relationships, experiencing the texture, the rhythms, and the tastes of the bodily world. This site-specific performance examines our relationships with both oneself and one another —the infinite gates where our bodies receive the nourishment and otherness of vibration and energy.”
