Danse Danse presents

Ballet BC

presenting a Triple Bill

16 + a room – Emily Molnar

Solo Echo – Crystal Pite

Bill – Sharon Eyal

The dancers of Ballet BC (Vancouver) dazzled audiences with their first Danse Danse performance, and will once again be taking the Montreal stage by storm with three fascinating dance realms. Artistic director Emily Molnar presents 16 + a room, a work first premiered in Canada with Ballet BC in October 2013. In Bill, the intense and powerful duo of Sharon Eyal & Gai Behar are inspired by the body and instinct, creating the magic of a surreal world regulated like clockwork. This signature Eyal and Behar piece is highly pictorial. As for Crystal Pite, she sets human chains and elastic bodies into motion to sonatas by Brahms in Solo Echo, the liquid movement of the dancers giving shape to delicate forms that convey strong emotion. Three excellent reasons to give in to temptation.

Length (with intermissions): 2 h

Post-performance talk with the artists: Friday April 7, 2017

“Molnar’s vision for the 18-member company is to make Ballet BC a lean, mean, contemporary-ballet machine.” − The Globe and Mail, Toronto
