New Works

Joshua Beamish is a British Columbian dance artist who has achieved worldwide success as a prolific choreographer and an exceptional performer: this thrilling program is a chance to see both aspects of his work. Beamish performs three exciting and varied new solos, created by internationally-acclaimed Belgian-Columbian choreographer Annabelle Lopez Ochoa; Ballet BC’s Kirsten Wicklund; and Beamish himself, with inspirations ranging from the Odyssey to fallen angels. The evening also includes a new duet by Lopez Ochoa, danced by Beamish and Kidd Pivot’s Renee Sigouin, drawing on the dramatic universe of Canadian Indigenous visual artist Shawn Hunt, whose paintings and masks combine elements of humans and animals with a haunting and powerful beauty.
