Ballet British Columbia

16 + a room

‘Superb. Packed with charismatic dancers performing at full strength’ Boston Globe

Touring to the UK for the very first time, Canada's most cutting-edge contemporary ballet company, Ballet BC Canada present a programme devoted exclusively to the work of three internationally-celebrated women choreographers as part of our International Women's Day celebrations.

Recognised for their fresh creativity, this 18-strong company of dancers will astound audiences with their unique blend of cool, classical elegance and contemporary flair. 

Inspired by the work of Jeanette Winterson and Emily Dickinson, 16+ a room, by artistic director Emily Molnar, sparks with explosive, fast-paced choreography that pushes the dancers to their athletic and technical limits.

Solo Echo by Olivier award-winning Sadler’s Wells Associate Artist and former Ballet BC dancer Crystal Pite, is a powerfully romantic work, shimmering in snowfall, and inspired by two Brahms’ sonatas for cello and piano.

Tel Aviv-based choreographer Sharon Eyal worked with regular collaborator Gai Behar to create Bill, a daring piece of raw beauty that showcases the dancers’ extraordinary skill in a fantastic finale.
