February 28, 29 & March 1, 2020
Choreography by Wen Wei Wang and Karissa Barry
The evening will feature two works by Artistic Director Wen Wei Wang; NIGHTbox and SWAN. First commissioned for Ballet BC in 2016, SWAN is an arresting and beautifully presented reimagining of the iconic characters of Swan Lake set to the music of Stravinsky and seen through a contemporary lens. Powerful and stunning – it is not to be missed.
“Wang is such an important voice right now in our country…”
– Emily Molnar/Ballet BC
“There is generally something heroic going on in Wen Wei Wang’s work…”
– Max Wyman
As Rehearsal Director for Ballet Edmonton, Karissa Barry is also a choreographic voice in her own right. Her meticulous, intelligent choreography offers our company dancers an opportunity to give voice to her inspired movement.
