Ballet Kelowna Capitol Season Show

March 9 @ 7:30 pm - 10:30 pm

$34 – $40

The taqəš and Other Works program features a stunning line-up of signature works from Ballet Kelowna’s contemporary ballet repertoire. With John Alleyne’s methodically harmonized Split House Geometric, Guillaume Côté’s riveting Bolero, and Cameron Fraser-Monroe’s powerful and compelling taqəš, this dynamic program promises to captivate audiences.

In John Alleyne’s Split House Geometric (1989-1990), poetic moments of pure contemporary ballet are juxtaposed with staccato movements with bodies creating geometric shapes to brilliant effect. First created for The National Ballet of Canada, this vigorous, precision-perfect work is set to Arvo Pärt’s Fratres.

Next, National Ballet of Canada Choreographic Associate Guillaume Côté brings strength and fragility to a fascinating interpretation of the beloved Bolero by Maurice Ravel, one of music’s most famous and identifiable melodies. A “riveting tour de force” (Dance Magazine), Bolero (2012) features breath-taking lifts and virtuosic choreography.

Rounding out the program is taqəš (2021), which means “to return something” in Ayajuthem, the language belonging to the Homalco, Klahoose, K’omoks and Tla’amin Nations. Visionary choreographer Cameron Fraser-Monroe brings his classical ballet training, knowledge of traditional Coast Salish, Grass, Hoop Dance, and experience as a contemporary dancer to this poignant piece. Set to several songs by Polaris Prize-winning composer and singer Jeremy Dutcher, taqəš follows the traditional story “Raven Returns the Water”, centred around Raven (P̓oho) and Frog (Walθ).
