All good things – this is the last call for Ballet BC’s popular Petite Cérémonie. The Medhi Walerski creation has been an international sensation on tour, and returns to Vancouver for one final hurrah.

Three internationally-renowned choreographers return to Ballet BC in Trace, a triple-bill program playing at the Queen Elizabeth Theatre March 26 to 28. Trace will be a dynamic and exciting triple bill from some of the most innovative and in-demand international dancemakers working today.

  • Petite Cérémonie – Medhi Walerski
  • New work (untitled) – Walter Matteini (Canadian premiere)
  • workwithinwork – William Forsythe (Canadian premiere)

Spotlight on Forsythe

Legendary choreographer William Forsythe galvanized the dance world with his brilliant, innovative thinking, catapulting him into the international spotlight with his dynamic, 21st century approach to the art form. Set to the intimate Duo for two Violins by Luciano Berio, workwithinwork is a superb example of Forsythe’s iconic style – using craft and imagination to interpret space with sophistication and curiosity.

Forsythe’s works are featured in the repertoire of virtually every major company in the world and Ballet BC is proud to bring workwithinwork to Canadian audiences.
