      Ballet BC has announced the program for its 2022/2023 season, which includes five world premieres.

      “Following a successful and meaningful return to live performance, we are proud to share what we have in store for audiences next season,” says Ballet BC artistic director Medhi Walerski in a news release. “It feels in some ways as if a blank canvas is in front of us, the possibilities endless.

      Ballet BC artistic director Medhi Walerski's Silent Tides will help open the company's new season.

      "I invite you to discover a wide-ranging collection of work by talents I deeply admire," he adds, "from emerging voices in dance to artists with longstanding partnerships with the company. I have never been more sure of the importance of what we do to uplift and inspire.”

      Opening the season, November 3 to 5, is OVERTURE/S, which features Walerski's Silent Tides, the world premiere of a new creation by Imre and Marne van Opstal, and Israeli choreographers Sharon Eyai and Gai Behar's Bedroom Folk.

      Up next, December 9 to 11, is the Royal Winnipeg Ballet's performance of the timeless holiday classic, Nutcracker, danced to Tchaikovsky's score.

      March 16 to 18, 2023, brings HORIZON/S, which includes brand new works by Vancouver-based Shay Kuebler and Czech choreographer Jiri Pokorny, and WHICH/ONE, by Adi Salant, former co-artistic director of the Batsheva Dance Company.

      And closing out the season, May 11 to 13, 2023, will be WAVE/S, featuring world premieres by Tel Aviv-based Roy Assaf and Sweden's Johan Inger, who collaborates with Vancouver's Arts Umbrella on a large-scale ensemble piece.
