"LOCK" - Ballet British Columbia (2017)

Choreography: Emanuel Gat
World Premiere May 11-13, 2017

Israeli choreographer Emanuel Gat is applauded around the world for his work that “knows how to bend tradition with craft.” As the Artistic Director of Emanuel Gat Dance in France, his original voice is one of rare beauty and humanity that engulfs the stage with expansive spirit, architecture, intelligence, and intimacy. Ballet BC is excited to collaborate with Gat and to expose our audiences to the many facets of his exceptional creative mind.


"The season closes in May with a world premiere by Israeli-born Emanuel Gat, who's worked with everyone from the Paris Opera Ballet to the Venice Biennale but never with Ballet BC."
