Contemporary Ballet is a language, and dances are stories, so the connection to what we do at David Allison Inc is clear: we are all about telling great stories.
What's got me fascinated is that I thought I would be bored by Ballet: until I saw that the stereotypical 'tights and tiaras' ballet is the exact polar opposite of what Ballet BC is all about. I've even casually suggested they drop the word Ballet from their name because it is so misleading to many people. They didn't. ;)
Why this blog post? Because finding this new interest has been a whack on the side of the head, creatively speaking, and so I think everyone should give it a go. This coming week is your chance: March 17, 18, 19 at the Queen Elizabeth Theatre. The crowd is a mix of young and old, couples and groups and singles. Some have been coming forever, and some, like me, are new to this. So why not give something entirely new a try? Buy tickets here.
The show starts at 8pm each night, and each night at 7pm there is a pre-show chat you can attend for free. The choreographer, Medhi Walerski, and the Artistic Director of Ballet BC, Emily Molnar, are questioned by a different moderator each night: On Thursday night, opening night, it's me.
So come join us! You may just find out that you love this form of telling stories as much as I do. Stories Are Everything.
