The Vancouver International Dance Festival opens with the Guangdong Modern Dance Company (GMDC), China’s oldest professional modern dance company, and Vancouver’s Goh Ballet sharing an evening of contemporary dance and ballet. Goh Ballet presents the Walspurgisnacht Ballet by George Ballanchine with GMDC making its Vancouver debut with Voice After, a work choreographed by resident choreographer Liu Qi. Inspired by the poetry of Bei Dao, Voice After depicts the tranquility of ocean waves, flocks of gulls, and the hidden storm surging below. The evening culminates with the premiere of Mustard Seed, also choreographed Liu Qi, combining the dancers of both GMDC and Goh Ballet – connecting the vibrant energies and technical virtuosos of these two companies.
