The internationally recognized Ballet BC performs the contemporary ballets Walking Mad and Other Works at the Chilliwack Cultural Centre March 17 at 8 p.m.
Presented by the Chilliwack Arts & Cultural Centre Society this ballet troupe features the work of award-winning choreographer Johan Inger who has created a innovative ballet in Walking Mad. The former artistic director of Cullberg Ballet showcases his impressive work as dancers explore the rhythm of the swelling tempo of Ravel's "Bolero."
Setting the mood, tension naturally mounts along with the volume and pace of "Bolero" taking the audience into a dramatic spiral of madness as the music escalates. Visually stunning, Walking Mad is an exciting and dramatic ballet portraying the transformation through spectacular dance manoeuvres.
Other performances on the night include Ballet BC's artistic director Emily Molnar's dance performance entitled Between Disappearing and Becoming.
Also on tap is Vitulare, a new performance piece by rising star of choreography Aszure Barton. Barton's unique choreography compliments the music with the magical movements of dancers captivating with every move.
