Hailing from Vancouver, Ballet BC pushes the boundaries of classical ballet with a cutting-edge, contemporary sensibility and “gorgeous energy” (The Independent). Praised as “physically rigorous, dramatically solid, and truly contemporary” (Dance Magazine), Ballet BC celebrates ten years under the leadership of Artistic Director and former company member Emily Molnar, whose vision has guided the company into an unprecedented era of innovation and collaboration.
As one of the most significant Canadian companies, Ballet BC returned to the Pillow with a diverse program including Molnar’s most recent work To this day and the U.S. premiere of Bedroom Folk, originally created for Nederlands Dans Theater by sought-after Israeli collaborators Sharon Eyal and Gai Behar, among others. Read more in the program and PillowNotes.
