Gioconda Barbuto and Wen Wei Wang present two new pieces for our final performance of the season.
Gioconda is an internationally recognized Italian-Canadian dancer and choreographer with over 50 works to her credit and has created work for internationally acclaimed dance companies including Les Grands Ballets Canadiens, Ballet BC, Les Ballets Jazz de Montréal, Alberta Ballet and Ballet Kelowna, to name a few.
World Premiere May 3, 2019, Edmonton, AB
This stunning new piece by Gioconda Barbuto explores the physical dialogue that develops in a collective atmosphere. This work reflects how we shape, shift, mold and encompass space. The audience will be immersed in a physical conversation; a manifestation of orchestral movement and honest intent.
Choreographer: Gioconda Barbuto
Set to Max Richters’s Recomposition of Vivaldi – The Four Seasons, Le Quattro is a musical homage to the seasons. From the serene beauty of a frostbitten winter to the awakening of spring, Wen Wei Wang’s Le Quattro is a stunning visual reckoning.
“Behold, my friends, the spring has come. The earth has gladly received the embraces of the sun; and we shall soon see the results of their love!”
– Sitting Bull
