CELESTIAL INFLUENCE

Three choreographers from Les Grands Ballets draw inspiration from the effect of the moon on the Earth to illustrate our world: power play, the coexistence of peoples, our differences and at the same time our synchronized evolution.

Adoptive Montrealer Andrew Skeels, winner of a 2018 Grand prix de la Critique in Paris, presents a reflection on humanity through his piece Vessel. The choreographer highlights the sacred quality of the union of bodies, as well as the harmony, hope and peace this gives rise to.

Les Grands Ballets principal dancer Vanesa G.R. Montoya, meanwhile, is staging a rich and dense work entitled From the Sun to the Moon. The central theme of this premiere is the coexistence of multiple realities in this world, producing at one and the same time constant struggle and limitless hope.

For her part, Vancouver-based artist Lesley Telford, who spent years with the Nederland Dans Theater, presents the piece Beguile. The choreographer explores interconnectivity, the influence we have on others and the influence others have on our individuality. Are we really independent beings?

Luna provides a vision of the human and at what inevitably bonds us, of the energy and power that derive from this. The work presents a triptych of visions with common ground in hope and beauty, a clear-eyed yet optimistic gaze directed at our humanity.
