About this Event

Dance Consortium presents

BALLET BRITISH COLUMBIA
Canada’s leading contemporary dance company

Canada’s Ballet British Columbia present an exhilarating evening of breathtaking dance by three internationally celebrated female choreographers.

Recognised for their fresh creativity, this 18-strong company of dancers will astound UK audiences with their unique blend of cool, classical elegance and contemporary flair.

Inspired by the work of Jeanette Winterson and Emily Dickinson, 16+ a room, by artistic director Emily Molnar, sparks with explosive, fast-paced choreography that pushes the dancers to their athletic and technical limits.

Solo Echo by Olivier award-winning Sadler’s Wells Associate Artist and former Ballet BC dancer Crystal Pite, is a powerfully romantic work, shimmering in snowfall, and inspired by two Brahms’ sonatas for cello and piano.

Tel Aviv-based choreographer Sharon Eyal worked with Gai Behar and Ori Lichtik to create Bill, a daring piece of raw beauty that showcases the dancers’ extraordinary skill in a fantastic finale.
