As the official launch of its new company and the announcement of its 2010-2011 subscription series, Ballet BC returns to the Queen Elizabeth Theatre on April 15th through April 17th with the aptly named Re/Naissance.
Re/Naissance features three Vancouver premieres created by internationally renowned choreographers William Forsythe, Itzik Galili and British Columbia native Crystal Pite.
Herman Schmerman originally created for the New York City Ballet is a work by iconoclastic choreographer Forsythe (of The Forsythe Company and formerly of the Frankfurt Ballet) with music by Dutch composer Thom Willems. Things I told nobody, by Israeli-born Galili, one of Europe’s hottest choreographers is set to music by Handel, Vivaldi, Mozart and Satie; and, Short works: 24 is a work by the internationally sought after choreographer Pite.
According to Artistic Director Emily Molnar and Executive Director Jay Rankin, Ballet BC is looking forward to its new beginnings and further pushing the boundaries of contemporary ballet.
