Eifman Ballet of St. Petersburg Presents Rodin
Excerpts from Rodin – Eifman Ballet of St. Petersburg
"Of the ballet choreographers making narrative works for major stages, Russian Romantic Boris Eifman is virtually the only one totally in touch with the 21st century," wrote the Los Angeles Times of Rodin and its choreographer. A ballet of dynamic, dazzlingly modern visuals that marry the art of sculpture to the fluid nature of dance, Rodin unspools the chaotic relationship of the renowned sculptor with his muse and mistress, fellow artist Camille Claudel. Working with light, shadow, and the human form, the dancers move effortlessly to capture the frozen grace of a statue, the frenetic, writhing energy of a madhouse, and the awkward feeling of dropping an expensive vase. Eifman's ballet paints a portrait of madness, passion, and both the nature of genius and its sometimes painful price.
Sony Centre for the Performing Arts
The largest soft-seat theatre in Canada, the Sony Centre for the Performing Arts is perhaps most famous for its overhanging marquee outside. The diagonal canopy and its snake-like rows of lights were restored to their original form in 2010, along with the facility’s wood, brass, and marble accents. Inside the lobby, York Wilson’s mural, The Seven Lively Arts, fills eyes with fractured, panoramic representations of various artistic media, from slanted musical staffs to menacing Greek theatre masks.
