World Premiere


Choreography: Gioconda Barbuto
Composer: Gabriel Prokofiev

After the success of TOUCH in 2011 for Ballet BC’s 25th Anniversary program, Montreal choreographer Gioconda Barbuto returns to create a new full company commission. Barbuto’s work reflects her personal characteristics as a dancer, specifically explosive physicality and subtle intelligence endowed with a fine sense of wit and theatricality. Formerly a soloist with Les Grands Ballets Canadiens, Barbuto has performed works by George Balanchine, Nacho Duato, Jiri Kylian, James Kudelka, Hans van Manen, Mark Morris, Ginette Laurin, José Limon and Ohad Naharin, among others. In 1998, she joined Netherlands Dance Theatre III, a company of professional dancers over the age of 40. In 1996, she received the Clifford E. Lee Award for excellence in choreography.

He has shared his unique dance vision with Compañia Nacional de Danza, the Hamburg Ballet, Budapest Dance Theater, Ballet Junior de Genève, and Netherlands Dance Theatre II. Ballet BC is the first Canadian company that Sansano has chosen for his newest choreographic adventure.
