>When: November 2-4 at 8:00pm
Tickets: Tickets range from $30.00 to $100.00 (including service charges) and can be purchased through Ticketmaster at 1-855-985-2787 (855-985-ARTS) or online.

Passionate and distinctly talented, Ballet BC’s company of dancers captivate audiences on home, national and global stages. Like never before, each collaboration, each performance punctuates a story of diversity, evolving practice and scope of artistic vision. This exciting program includes both a World Premiere and a North American Premiere.

Contemporary yet timeless, the season begins with a driving new work by internationally acclaimed Ballet BC Resident Choreographer Cayetano Soto and the North American debut of B.R.I.S.A. by Swedish-born Johan Inger, one of the most sought-after choreographers in Europe today.

To launch the season, Cayetano Soto, a visionary of contemporary ballet, will create a new one-act work for the full company. This World Premiere will bring together his integrated vision as choreographer, costume and lighting designer in surprising new ways.

In B.R.I.S.A., ighly-acclaimed choreographer Johan Inger explores the themes of awakening and change. Following the success of Walking Mad, Inger returns to Ballet BC with the North American Premiere of B.R.I.S.A. One of the most prominent dance makers today, Johan Inger’s renowned work probes our intellect and sensitivities.
