Let's go watch Ballet BC, Vancouver's own contemporary ballet company! http://www.balletbc.com/una.html

New Work World Premiere
Choreography: Gioconda Barbuto
Composer: Gabriel Prokofiev


After the success of TOUCH in 2011 for Ballet BC’s 25th Anniversary program, Montreal choreographer Gioconda Barbuto returns to create a new full company commission. Barbuto’s work reflects her personal characteristics as a dancer, specifically explosive physicality and subtle intelligence endowed with a fine sense of wit and theatricality. Formerly a soloist with Les Grands Ballets Canadiens, Barbuto has performed works by George Balanchine, Nacho Duato, Jiri Kylian, James Kudelka, Hans van Manen, Mark Morris, Ginette Laurin, José Limon and Ohad Naharin, among others. In 1998, she joined Netherlands Dance Theatre III, a company of professional dancers over the age of 40. In 1996, she received the Clifford E. Lee Award for excellence in choreography.


New Work World Premiere  


Choreography: Gustavo Ramirez Sansano

“…highly original, starkly expressionistic...emotionally fierce, sensual… riveting from start to finish…” is how the Chicago Sun Times characterizes the work of Spanish choreographer Gustavo Ramirez Sansano. A rising star in the international dance world, he is the Artistic Director of the prominent Chicago-based Luna Negra Dance Theater and the recipient of many awards for choreography, including competitions in Barcelona, Hamburg, and Valencia. He has shared his unique dance vision with Compañia Nacional de Danza, the Hamburg Ballet, Budapest Dance Theater, Ballet Junior de Genève, and Netherlands Dance Theatre II. Ballet BC is the first Canadian company that Sansano has chosen for his newest choreographic adventure.


New Work World Premiere  


Choreography: Cayetano Soto

Cayetano Soto is a vibrant new voice in contemporary ballet with “an abundance of originality” according to Dance Europe. Born in Spain, Soto studied in Barcelona and later The Hague before performing with IT Dansa in Barcelona and then Ballet Theater Munich. His work is in the repertoire of major companies around the world, including Royal Ballet of Flanders, Stuttgart Ballet, Aspen Santa Fe Ballet, Ballet Theater Munich, Augsburg Ballet, Introdans, BJM Danse, Companhia Nacional de Bailado in Lisboa, Tanz Theater Luzern and Balé da Cidade of Sao Paulo. During this incredibly creative period in Soto’s career, audiences can anticipate an inspiring work of discovery

    Hi Dee, Liz and Winnie! Unfortunately I will be working during the show so I won't be able to meet you at exactly 7:30! Be sure to stay afterwards for the Season Wrap Party and Silent Auction Fundraiser at the theatre where you can meet the Artistic Director, Executive Director and the dancers. Please send me an email and I'd love to meet you all! [masked]
