Ballet BC is thrilled to welcome new Artistic Director Medhi Walerski as the company returns to the studio next month, to prepare for new productions set to debut this fall. The company will continue their commitment to create, innovate and inspire through the power of dance — both new talent and legacy dancers are working on live and digital performances that will unite them with Vancouver audiences, the details of which will be released soon. Always striving to create new ways to showcase the Ballet BC experience, the company is also welcoming a new filmmaker-in-residence, Kevin Fitzgerald, who will be following the dancers and providing both a new artistic and behind-the-scenes perspective throughout the season.
“The past few months have allowed all of us time to reflect as we have seen our lives upended,” said Medhi Walerski, Artistic Director of Ballet BC. “The role of art and how it shapes our world is ever present; it has the power to capture our aliveness while being a source of healing, inspiration and hope. Due to the pandemic, we’ve had to re-imagine what the season would look like and I’m excited to share the company’s diverse and creative vision with the local, national and international dance world.”
