This landmark NAC Commission pairs three of Canada’s outstanding choreographic talents with three of the country’s most exciting composers.

Alberta Ballet’s eminent and prolific Jean Grand-Maître joins forces with multiple award-winning new music visionary Andrew Staniland; and Guillaume Côté, gifted dancer and choreographic associate with the National Ballet of Canada, is perfectly paired with noted emerging composer Kevin Lau.

I love every note Nicole Lizée writes, and her score here is no exception. Lizée works her usual wizardry between the acoustic and the electronic, employing effects like speeding up and slowing down, clashing time signatures, Dali-esque glissandi, and fantastic percussion combinations, tied together with wit and the kind of originality that makes you grin at the sheer balls of it.
