Founded in 1986, the Canadian company Ballet BC, based in Vancouver, has developed an impressive repertoire with the greatest international choreographers namely William Forsythe, Ohad Naharin and Emanuel Gat, and with dancers of the highest level who have consolidated their reputation all over the world.
On their first visit to Arriaga Theatre, their director, Medhi Walerski, a former NDT dancer and choreographer, offers a particularly exciting triple bill. The performance begins with Garden, a piece created by Walerski himself who was inspired by the Quintet for piano and strings in A minor by Camille Saint-Saëns to create a fluid and organic work that fosters a fascinating dialogue between the refined music and the sensual bodies of the dancers.
In The Statement, the second piece of the evening, the well-known Canadian choreographer Crystal Pite proposes a wildly inventive creation that combines dance and theatre to explore the conflict of power. Four performers locked in battle for control confront manipulation in a piece based on a powerful text by the Canadian playwright Jonathon Young.
The programme will close with Bedroom Folk, by Israeli Sharon Eyal, who together with artist and producer Gai Behar has constructed a spectacular piece. The group choreography for eighteen performers is based on the electronic music of the artist Ori Lichtick. The dancers are led into a hypnotic dance as they brilliantly master a rich and complex gesturality to the sound of evocative and powerful music.
