Ballet Kelowna comes to Revelstoke

Ballet Kelowna’s latest show, Actions Consequences is coming to Revelstoke this Monday, Mar. 7.

“We wanted to show the relationship between the choreographic process and the outcome and how some choreographers rely on the input of the dancers to create the work and how other choreographers come with the work already set and fit the dancers on to that,” artistic director David Lehay told the Times Review.

This will be done by providing introductions and explanations of each dance, which include a mix of contemporary and classical dances.

Amongst the performances are Auguste Bournonville’s The Flower Festival Pas de Deux, which tells the delightful story of young lovers in Genzano; and Dvorak Dances, a simple evocation of Czech composer Antonin Dvorak’s lovely music.

The show also includes the world premiere of choreographer Gioconda Barbuto’s Capture and In Stride, a joyful piece set to the music of composer Glenn Branca

Lastly, Simone Orlando’s Stage Within, which Ballet Kelowna premiered last Fall, will also be featured.

The performances “explores the physical relationship of movement to music and sight to sound,” states Ballet Kelowna.

“When you talk about dance, for quite a long time the choreographers used steps the dancers all knew from class,” said Lehay. “With contemporary and new choreographers, they want to see what the dancers are capable of doing before they make choreographic decision so quite often the dancer has a large input into what the final look of the work is.”

Orlando’s play uses a mix of classical and contemporary dance, said Lehay.

“She’s used classical dance steps to tell the story of the dance performance and she’s used the contemporary movement to talk about the emotions of the dancers going through that process.”

The show, presented by the Revelstoke Arts Council, takes place on Monday. Mar. 7 at the Revelstoke Community Centre. Doors open at 7:30 p.m. Tickets are $20 for adults and $15 for seniors and students.
