Ballet Kelowna - taqəš and Other Works

April 5th, 2024 | 7 PM
Vanier Hall
$61.75
With Seat Selection

The taqəš and Other Works program features a stunning lineup of signature works from Ballet Kelowna’s contemporary ballet repertoire. With Cameron Fraser-Monroe’s powerful and compelling taqəš [tawKESH], Guillaume Côté’s mesmerizing Bolero, and Fraser-Monroe’s satirical The Cowboy Act Suite, this high-energy program promises to please a wide range of spectators.

 

Cameron Fraser-Monroe brings his classical ballet training, knowledge of traditional Coast Salish, Grass, and Hoop Dance, and experience as a contemporary dancer to taqəš [tawKESH], which means “to return something” in Ayajuthem, the language belonging to the Homalco, Klahoose, K’omoks and Tla’amin Nations. Set to several songs by Polaris Prize-winning composer and singer Jeremy Dutcher, taqəš follows the traditional story “Raven Returns the Water,” centred around ῤoho (raven) and walθ (frog).

 

Next, National Ballet of Canada Choreographic Associate Guillaume Côté brings strength and fragility to a fascinating interpretation of the beloved Boléro by Maurice Ravel, one of music’s most famous and identifiable melodies. A “riveting tour de force” (Dance Magazine), Bolero (2012) features breathtaking lifts and virtuosic choreography.

 

Rounding out the program, audiences will be transported to the Wild West in Cameron Fraser-Monroe’s The Cowboy Act Suite, a work that explores the dichotomy between “Cowboys and Indians” set to music by Mohawk singer/songwriter Tom Wilson. While these caricatures have been portrayed on pages, stages, and in films, they are often penned from a colonial perspective. Fraser-Monroe’s intuitive take on the swashbuckling strut of the Cowboy informs this intellectual unpacking of a one-sided lens and flips the script to ask, what happens when an Indian directs the Cowboys through their history?

 

Total running time including pause and 15-minute intermission = 86 minutes

Connect with Canada’s immigration history in the very gateway that inspired the production Pier 21: The Musical. Refugees and immigrants flee Europe as war breaks out in 1939. After half a million soldiers depart from Pier 21 to fight in the Second World War, War Brides and a new generation of immigrants arrive to take their first steps on Canadian soil through the Pier.

 

Site-specific theatre at its best, Pier 21: The Musical is a Celtic and Swing flavoured musical packed with powerful vignettes and characters. Pier 21: The Musical is presented by the Canadiana Musical Theatre Company. Book, Music and Lyrics are by Allen des Noyers. 

Jhoely Triana Flamenco
and NAVAZ

October 6th, 2023 | 7 PM
Knox Performance Centre

Jhoely Triana Flamenco features Jhoely Triana and her band, bringing you a full hour of latin-infused flamenco music and dance. Her performance includes three solos from her Arboles (Trees) performance, which revolves around the concept of memories. The performance uses the metaphor of trees to represent how we must honor our roots and gather strength from our past to reach new heights so that we can share our lived experiences with our community and spread the seeds of empathy and compassion.

 

Navaz began as a musical collaboration between Neda Jalali and Eric Tompkins. Eric's jazz and Latin guitar stylings and his interest in world music compliments Neda's beautifully haunting voice. Neda sings mostly in Farsi, but she also sings in Spanish, French, Italian, Arabic, and English. The mystical poetry of Hafez and Rumi, traditional Persian melodies, jazz, Latin and blues rhythms are all part of the Navaz experience.
