Lesley Telford's choreography brings together a technically rigorous vocabulary and a thought-provoking approach, refined by her years dancing with Nederlands Dans Theater and creating for companies at home and abroad, most recently Ballet BC. This triple bill features an excerpt of a new creation inspired by Einstein's famous phrase “spooky action at a distance”, referring to particles that are so closely linked, they share the same existence: a collaboration with poet Barbara Adler, the piece seeks to extend the theory to human connections in our phenomenally interconnected world. The program also includes a new extended version of If, a trio based on Anne Carson's poem, and the duet My tongue, your ear, with text by Wislawa Szymborska.

Telford, an alumna of the towering Nederlands Dans Theater and Madrid’s Compañía Nacional de Danza, is a riveting new talent, building movement that’s strange, intelligent, and surprising at every turn. The Georgia Straight
