Les Grands Ballets Canadiens presents

Falling Angels, Evening Songs and Searching for Home


Contemporary Ballet
Live Music by Percussionists from Les Grands Ballets Orchestra

Falling Angels
With Falling Angels, Jiří Kylián explores the duality that drives artists, the opposition between their discipline and their pursuit of freedom. Steve Reich’s percussions structure Kylián’s choreography, a tribute to the dancers and their brilliance, vulnerability and humour. This struggle bet-ween a need to belong and a desire for independence is a dilemma that haunts us all.

Evening Songs
Featuring a magnificent a capella choir performing Dvořák’s eponymous work, Evening Songs is a refined and poignant con­temporary ballet. Masterful choreographer Jiří Kylián brings to­gether a group of men and women who discover, at twilight, the wonders of nature.

Searching for Home
Searching for Home by Stephan Thoss is an inner voyage into the multiplicity of the self. Rooted in a fascinating aesthetic, it interweaves classical ballet with German expressionist dance. Mysterious, evocative, magical.

Beginning an hour before each performance, spectators are invited to pre-show talks. These exciting half-hour talks are a rare opportunity to gain insight on the work presented.  Each pre-show talk will be hosted by journalist Shelley Pomerance who will share anecdotes on the production’s creative process, inspiration, music and costumes. A great way to start the evening!

Admission is free for Les Grands Ballets ticket holders. The performance ticket will be required at the entrance.
