Ballet BC celebrates 30 years with Triple Bill, presented by Dance Victoria November 13/14 2015

Ballet BC celebrates 30 years with Triple Bill, Presented by Dance Victoria November 13/14, 2015.  Media Release.

Dance Victoria is excited to introduce a special admission program to Ballet BC’s Triple bill for their 30th anniversary season. To celebrate this milestone, Dance Victoria is offering free admission to ticket buyers who are 30 years of age. If you are 30, contact the McPherson Box Office for your free ticket.

Ballet BC’s Triple Bill features riveting, explosive dance by international choreographers who are reshaping contemporary ballet. Stijn Celis’ new creation, premiering in Vancouver only a week before, opens the program. Celis is a Belgian choreographer and stage designer, notable for juxtaposing athletic dance with tender, poetic movement, and varied musical choices including pop, electronic, ethnic and classical. Solo Echo, by Kidd Pivot Artistic Director and Victoria’s own Crystal Pite, is a reaction to Mark Strand’s poem, Lines for Winter, and to two Brahms sonatas that have been touchstones in her creative life. Twenty Eight Thousand Waves, by Ballet BC’s resident choreographer, Cayetano Soto, combines a surging musical score with a metaphor of rushing waves against an oil rig, to create complex sculptures pushing through space in endless beginnings and transitions.

Bold and innovative, the Company is a hotbed for the creation of dance, performing 35 new works by Canadian and international choreographers in the last six years. The Company’s dancers are renowned for their ability to perform very physically demanding movement.
