Ballet BC in Québec

This winter, Ballet BC tours to Québec with three diverse contemporary works. The triple bill includes A.U.R.A, an abstract unearthly oddity by Italian choreographer Jacapo Godani, Walking Mad, an award-winning work of heartrending authenticity by Swedish choreographer Johan Inger, and Petite Cérémonie, a dynamic, comical, theatrical piece by French choreographer Medhi Walerski that was created specifically for Ballet BC in 2011.

Emily Molnar, artistic director since 2009, has worked with the company to foster a collaborative, creative atmosphere in which new pieces can be made through a collective process. Molnar brings international choreographers to work with the company and also creates new pieces with them herself, resulting in a diverse repertoire of present-day work. Ballet BC is cultivating a new landscape of ballet that is truly contemporary, widely accessible, and sophisticated without a hint of snobbery.

Presented by Danse Danse, Ballet BC performs in Montréal from January 22 to 24, in Sherbrooke on January 27, in L’Assomption on January 29 and in Québec City on February 3, before travelling further east to Fredericton, NB, Charlottetown, PEI, Halifax, NS and Saint John, NB.
