A Day in the Life BY STEPHEN WHITE

LIKE EVERY 16 YEAR OLD IN WINDSOR, Ontario, I couldn’t wait to get my license. Finally I’d be free of my parents and I could drive anywhere I wanted to go. Little did I know when I was sitting through Driver’s Ed. and sweating through the exam, that within the year I’d be handing the keys back to my parents, vowing never to drive again. In that short time, I had a couple of minor fender benders and one full-on accident (my fault). I also frightened myself a few times by how quickly I became outraged at other motorists driving, swearing at them, giving them the finger. The combination of my ineptitude, the new-to-me inner rage and (to be honest) fear, were enough for me to decide that I needed to step away from the car. As a result, I’m a cyclist. I love it. Most days. There are those periods of five or six dark rainy winter days when I pull on my damp rain gear day after day before heading out into more rain and wind that I wonder what it would be like to slip behind the wheel of a car instead. A few Sundays ago, Dance Victoria joined our colleagues at the Vancouver Dance Centre to host a memorial for Julie Poskitt. Julie was a remarkable woman who spent the past 15 or 20 years as a grants officer at the Canada Council for the Arts and the BC Arts Council. She had touched many people who worked in dance and music in this province and across the country. Julie had the remarkable capacity to deliver bad news to an artist about their funding and still make that individual feel like their contribution was important. The Vancouver memorial was scheduled shortly after Julie passed away in the fall, months prior to the January date. There had been a funeral service in Victoria, but nothing in Vancouver, so it felt important that our colleagues there gather as a community to remember Julie. Sunday morning, after the final Friday and Saturday of Dance Days: two days during which we had welcomed a dozen colleagues to town, and on Friday hosted a brunch and two public showings during the day and presented MAN at the McPherson that evening. Saturday started at 10:00 am with a Choreography Walk through downtown, a huge community roundtable, three showings and a closing night party. What was I thinking? I mounted my bike at 10:10 am Sunday morning. I was flying Helijet (we love Helijet!) at 11:00 am. I had a half hour ride, from Oak Bay Village to Ogden Point ahead of me. I was a little worn out, but I knew we were doing a good thing. I rode along thinking about Julie and halfway there, I realized I didn’t have my ID. You need your ID to fly Helijet. There was no choice. I had to cycle home, grab my ID and head back, which is precisely what I did. I rode like a maniac thinking, “Please Julie, please hold the helicopter!” She heard me. I made it just in the nick of time, locked my bike, and walked onto the flight. When I stepped onto the helipad in Vancouver, the lactic acid in my legs had settled. I felt like an old man. Bernard and I grabbed the catering, set up the room and people arrived. It was a sweet, lovely, tenderhearted afternoon. But me? I could hardly walk for two days. FN

Making the 2019/20 Season There are a lot of considerations that go into making a new season. At Dance Victoria, we start with the Royal Theatre dates. With those in hand, we go shopping (by the way the “we” is me and Bernard Sauvé). Over the years Dance Victoria has established itself as a vibrant centre for dance presentation. As a consequence, we receive emails and newsletters from around the world on a daily basis. We are also in contact with artist representatives, we attend festivals, and we always make sure to get to at least one “trade show” where we immerse ourselves in meetings. Once we know what’s available to us, we start to craft the season. I love this extended conversation with Bernard because it’s all about possibility. We think about diversity and balance. We think endlessly about you and how you might react to the choices we’re making. We walk a thin line at Dance Victoria (some days it feels like a tight rope). Whatever we choose has to have the potential to sell tickets, yet it also has to live up to our tagline The World’s Best Dance. The 2019/20 Season came together with remarkable ease for us. It’s seldom like this. Often we find ourselves scrambling in January to nail down that last company, but this year we were done and dusted in October. We couldn’t believe our good fortune because it’s a great season to boot! It has beauty (Aspen Santa Fe), exuberance (Ukrainian Shumka Dancers’ Nutcracker), hilarity (Les Ballets Trockadero de Monte Carlo), innovation (Kidd Pivot), heartbreak (Ballet BC’s Romeo + Juliet), and spectacle (Tania Pérez-Salas Compañía de Danza). The dance genres include contemporary ballet, Ukrainian folk dance, ballet, ballet-parody, and dance theatre. Ta da! And we’re really very proud that Dance Victoria has had a hand in the development of two of the pieces on the season. In 2017, Dance Victoria provided $25,000 from its Chrystal Dance Fund to support Ballet BC’s new production of Romeo + Juliet, easily the most ambitious project in Ballet BC’s recent history.

Our contribution supported the integration of graduating Arts Umbrella dance students into the corps de ballet. These students had the incredible opportunity to work alongside the talented Ballet BC dancers under the direction of celebrated French choreographer Medhi Walerski. And you’ll see, the outcome was remarkable. It’s stunning. Walerski is a master storyteller. And the gorgeous aesthetic is simple, and clean. We’re very excited for you to see it next March. Last summer, 12 people from our community joined us by contributing close to $15,000 and Dance Victoria added $10,000 from its Chrystal Dance Fund to provide $25,000 to Kidd Pivot (Crystal Pite) for the creation of Revisor. The company was thus able to hire emerging dance artist Renée Sigoun to work as an apprentice with the extraordinary international company of dancers at Kidd Pivot. Pite is an innovator in the genre of dance theatre. Her work tells a story, this time with a new script by Pite’s collaborator Jonathon Young based on Gogol’s play Inspector General. Pite describes it this way, “…we’ve been developing a style of dancing to text that is akin to lip-synching, but done with the entire body. Some scenes in Betroffenheit (2016) gave Jonathon and me the confidence and inspiration to try doing an entire play in this style…” We feel like we just keep getting better as we construct a season of dance for the Royal Theatre. So it is with confidence and a real sense of excitement that we are delighted to invite you to join us again in 2019/20. See you at the theatre!

Dance at the Royal Series ASPEN SANTA FE BALLET CONTEMPORARY BALLET Dream Play Fernando Melo | Where We Left Off

Nicolo Fonte |

Half/Cut/Split Jorma Elo

An unforgettable mix of live dance and piano virtuosity with world-renowned pianist Joyce Yang performing live on stage. ASFB tackles the quirky Half/Cut/Split by noted Finnish choreographer Jorma Elo, who collaborated with Yang to bring Robert Schumann’s Carnaval to life. Also on the program are Fernando Melo’s Dream Play set to the music of Erik Satie and Frédéric Chopin, and Nicolo Fonte’s touching Where We Left Off with music by Philip Glass. “Yang’s attention to detail and clarity is as impressive as her agility, balance, and velocity.” W A S H I N G T O N POST

KIDD PIVOT CONTEMPORARY February 5 + 6, 2020 • 7:30 pm Revisor Crystal Pite & Jonathon Young The newest work by Crystal Pite and Jonathon Young, creators of the international sensation, Betroffenheit. Eight dancers embody the recorded dialogue of some of Canada’s finest actors in a plot that reinvests theatrical devices with anarchic absurdity, and Pite’s wildly inventive choreography. As story and dance cascade into a final conflagration of human failing and moral bankruptcy, Revisor uses the mutable language of conflict and comedy to examine the relationship between people and politics, with eviscerating wit and bold physicality. “Pite is an image-maker of rare distinction.” T H E


BALLET BC CONTEMPORARY BALLET March 13 + 14, 2020 • 7:30 pm Romeo + Juliet Medhi Walerski A first for Ballet BC’s repertoire, Shakespeare’s classic Romeo and Juliet has inspired many artists with its tragic tale of “star-crossed lovers.” Compelling in its timelessness, the work captures audiences with its deeply human story and enduring themes of love, fate and family. Reflecting on the divisions that persist in today’s world, Ballet BC will offer a fresh and heartbreaking retelling of the classic set to Sergei Prokofiev’s original score, that resonates profoundly today. “The final images – their ability to create unforgettable sequences and tableaux through the simplest means – reveal Mr. Walerski at his most visionary.” G L O B E A N D M A I L

TANIA PÉREZ-SALAS COMPAÑÍA DE DANZA CONTEMPORARY May 1 + 2, 2020 • 7:30 pm Ex-Stasis Tania Pérez-Salas | Religare

Tania Pérez-Salas

Innovative. Theatrical. Raw. Personal. These are only a few adjectives that have been used to describe the work of Tania Pérez-Salas, Mexico’s leading contemporary choreographer. In Ex-Stasis, Pérez-Salas explores trusting our instincts to let the body communicate with the mind while Religare investigates the power of dance as a ritual that reconciles the body with the spirit. “Exquisite lighting and provocative visual design characterize each piece, and it is the imagery that stays with the viewer long after the movement fades.” B O S T O N G L O B E

This classic tale of young Clara and her dream Prince incorporates Ukrainian traditions and symbols, grand orchestral versions of Tchaikovsky’s legendary score, and lavish sets and costumes designed by National Opera of Ukraine’s Maria Levitska. Exuberant entertainment! “A perfect first Nutcracker for many generations… A powerful and beautiful thing to behold.” E D M O N T O N


LES BALLETS TROCKADERO DE MONTE CARLO COMIC BALLET February 4, 2020 • 8:00 pm • ONE NIGHT ONLY Dance Victoria presents the world’s foremost all-male comic ballet company for one night only! Playful and entertaining, this skewed view of traditional ballet is a perfect polished parody of the highest order. The Trocks’ inspired blend of their loving knowledge of dance, their comic approach, and the astounding fact that men can, indeed, dance en pointe without falling flat on their faces (mostly), has made them loved around the globe. “This is a company that brings its audiences pure joy.” S E A T T L E

Ladies Leading: Ballet BC’s Emily Molnar An excerpt from Vancouver’s Artslandia magazine by Ariane Fleischmann | Photos by Rob Trendiak Visit Artslandia.com for the full article Artslandia pulls back the curtain on the leadership philosophy that’s fueled a groundbreaking, triumphant decade at the helm of Ballet BC and nearly half a decade with Banff Centre. Emily Molnar asks a lot of questions. Her natural state is one in which she considers her actions, the creative process, those of her collaborators. It’s not a means of applying pressure to her roles at Ballet BC and Banff Centre; rather, it’s the reason she’s a visionary leader, a trusted mentor, and an eloquent cultural commentator. Flying between Banff Centre in Alberta and Ballet BC in Vancouver throughout the summer of 2018, Molnar is in her element. This year, at a four-week performance program that Molnar oversees, 12 dancers and four actors worked with choreographer Alan Lucien Øyen and Program Head Stephen Laks, as well as a team of set, costume, sound, and light designers from winter guests to reimagine The Hamlet Complex. The Artistic Director of Dance at Banff Centre since 2014, Molnar curates its year-round programming. In parallel to the performance program, The Creative Gesture residency offers two-week courses in dramaturgy and designing for dance, as well as a composition lab for composers, choreographers, and dancers. And these are just the summer offerings.

SHAPING BALLET BC At Ballet BC since 2009, Molnar has fostered a community of collaborators. “I try to create a space where people feel like they can show up [and] trust it’s safe to take risks,” she says. “I tend to work with the person as much as the thing that we’re working on. I try to help guide versus telling people what to do.” The horizontal environment gives dancers and choreographers agency; it blurs the line between dancer-choreographer-performer. Molnar says her dancers want more responsibility, and creators enjoy the depth of conversation that emerges when more variations on a theme are in the room. “The work we make is enhanced by being part of this collaborative approach,” Molnar explains. “It helps and supports the creative act and allows us to make work that is more meaningful to us and, in turn (hopefully), more meaningful for our audience. When people feel that they belong; when they feel that they’re heard; when they feel that they’re part of something, the experience is unique.”

BUILDING COMMUNITY Now celebrating her 10th year at Ballet BC, Molnar continues to challenge her perspective and that of the people around her. “At the

heart of it, we’re asking people to examine who they are and what their responsibility is to living and being human. Through that, we’re trying to exercise ideas and what it means to make work: How do we compose, and who are we composing for? With? About?” Molnar encourages the entire company to examine its virtuosity because it can be seen everywhere: “in how we go into a community and teach a workshop, the way we perform onstage, the way we listen to each other in a room. Those are all things we try to excel at. One of those actions is not greater than the other.” In recent years, Ballet BC has expanded their programming beyond the stage. They’ve collaborated with other artists to reach new audiences, brought their classes to underprivileged youth, opened a dialogue with the professional community, and created more equitable access to dance through sponsored tickets and free live streaming. “It’s important that we’re always having a conversation with our community,” says Molnar. “We need to know what people are curious about. We’re always trying to find a point of introduction and know how we can develop and deepen that relationship.” Ballet BC comes to the Royal Theatre on March 15 and 16 for a three-show program with choreography by Cayetano Soto, Emily Molnar and Medhi Walerski.

Seeing Double It may be a few more months before our friends at Ballet Victoria announce their 2019/20 season, but we recently learned that they are planning to present their version of Romeo and Juliet choreographed by Artistic Director Paul Destrooper in March 2020, one week prior to our presentation of Ballet BC’s version. The question next March isn’t “Wherefore art thou Romeo?” It’s more like, “Where aren’t you, Romeo?” Destrooper’s version is more in the style of classical ballet, with Juliet danced en pointe, whereas, Ballet BC’s Romeo + Juliet, choreographed by France’s Medhi Walerski is in the genre of contemporary ballet. For the aficionado, next March presents the rare opportunity to experience R&J two ways!

Choreographic Lab with Justine A. Chambers and Susan Elliott July 22 to August 3, 2019 From July 22 through August 3, 2019 Dance Victoria will hold its third annual two-week intensive Choreographic Lab. This year, Justine A. Chambers and Susan Elliott will lead the Lab. Chambers and Elliott will mentor Victoria-based choreographers Kelly Hobson and Angela Mousseau and Vancouver’s Mahaila Patterson-O’Brien. Chambers and Elliott will assign a task to the choreographers after a dance class each morning. They will spend the afternoon generating new material based on the task with a company of dancers engaged for the Lab. The best works will be performed for the public on August 3, 2019 at Dance Victoria Studios. We hope to see you there! For more information, visit DanceVictoria.com
