Choreography by Medhi Walerski

“Mr. Walerski is a choreographer who makes clear, theatrical choices and seems deeply invested in conceptual coherence” —Globe and Mail

Pure and organic, demanding and challenging, GARDEN is 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 in a pure and intricate choreography answering the subtle connections between the instruments.


Bedroom Folk
Choreography by Sharon Eyal & Gai Behar

“[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.
