Ballet BC is an internationally acclaimed collaborative and interactive contemporary ballet company. Bold and creative, the company’s distinctive style and approach has helped it make a unique and valuable contribution to the development of dance in Canada. With three pieces from three celebrated choreographers, Ballet BC will showcase dance at its most essential: visceral, powerful, thought-provoking and transformative.

Set to a dynamic electronic acoustic score, A.U.R.A. is sleek and startling in its relentless intensity, showcasing choreographer Jacopo Godani’s explosive and kinetic style. The provocative nature of A.U.R.A. combined with its virtuosic physicality has made it a highly successful hit at home and abroad. 

Originally created for Ballet BC, Petite Cérémonie is a powerful and poetic full-company piece by rising European dance star Medhi Walerski. Inspired by the idea of “life in a box,” it explores a range of dimensions, culminating in a surprising and delightful mix of dance and theatre, full of imagery and adventure, a dazzling landscape of movement and ideas. 

Johan Inger, formerly Artistic Director of Cullberg Ballet and a member of the Royal Swedish Ballet and Netherlands Dance Theatre has created a breathtaking work for nine dancers. Set to Ravel’s Bolero, Walking Mad reflects Socrates belief that “our greatest blessings come to us by way of madness.”
