We open this season with an evening of visual storytelling by two celebrated dance artists. Ballet BC Resident Choreographer Cayetano Soto, a visionary of contemporary ballet, will premiere an original work. Highly-acclaimed choreographer Johan Inger has a legacy of work in major companies all over the world. Following the success of Walking Mad, Inger returns to Ballet BC with the North American premiere of B.R.I.S.A.
To launch the season, Soto will create a new one-act work for the full company that will bring together his integrated vision as a choreographer, costume and lighting designer in surprising new ways. An intuitive and masterful designer of movement and space, cited by Dance Europe as having "an abundance of originality", Soto commands his audiences to dive into intriguing worlds of curiosity and discovery with his choreography.
One of the most prominent dance makers today, Johan Inger's renowned work probes our intellect and sensitivities. Inger made his choreographic debut in 1995 after a thriving dance career at the Nederlands Dans Theater (NDT), where he remains as Associate Choreographer. In B.R.I.S.A., Inger explores the themes of awakening and change.
