Canada’s most cutting-edge dance company brings a triple bill of works by female choreographers.

Inspired by the work of Jeanette Winterson and Emily Dickinson, 16 + a room is a study of time, transition and stillness choreographed by the company’s artistic director Emily Molnar to a score by Dirk Haubrich.

Olivier award-winning, Sadler’s Wells Associate Artist and former Ballet BC dancer, Crystal Pite explores acceptance and loss in Solo Echo, inspired by two Brahms sonatas and Mark Strand’s poem Lines for Winter.

Choreographer Sharon Eyal worked with regular collaborators Gai Behar and Ori Lichtik to create Bill, showcasing her trademark style.
