Dear Friends,

Welcome to our 39TH season of Canadian contemporary dance!

An adventure of the new, it includes world premiere performances made here in Edmonton. I’m joining my Prairie Dance Circuit pals to open the season. Each of us is creating a new dance with a local artist we find inspiring. I’m excited to be working with Tony Olivares, who is a wild dancer. Usha Gupta’s new work will personify the beautiful and positive energy of Edmonton’s culturally diverse community.

Then, there’s Joshua Beamish. Born in Edmonton, he began his dance training here and has gone on to become a huge force on the world stage. His solo piece shows him to be a fearless dancer, performer and creator who revels in the new.

We also present the dances of Christopher House, Artistic Director of Toronto Dance Theatre... one of the most spectacular ensembles in Canada. His dances reveal the transformative energy shot into the universe when people dance together.

And what better way to begin a BOLD adventure between BWDC and the Citadel than by presenting BETROFFENHEIT… a piece that defines the intersection of dance and theatre. We are thrilled to be part of its third world tour.

While we will be FOREVER 39, we are celebrating this milestone with a feast of spectacular performances, featuring dancers who reveal the joy, power and majesty of the dancing body.

It’s yours to witness…

Brian Webb
