Ballet Edmonton

Ballet Edmonton is a contemporary ballet ensemble of company dancers under the leadership of celebrated choreographer and Artistic Director Wen Wei Wang. The company creates and commissions original work each season from a variety of choreographic voices. Ballet Edmonton’s vision is driven by a passion and curiosity to explore new ideas. We offer audiences original, inspired contemporary dance that reflects our Artistic Director’s adventurous, curatorial vision.

Ballet Edmonton will present a triple-bill mix program of three new works by two outstanding choreographic voices. The evening opens with two works by celebrated choreographer and Ballet Edmonton Artistic Director Wen Wei Wang with Persistence of Memory and SWAN, followed by a stunning new creation, Valei-me, by Brazilian-born Diego Ramalho.

Persistence Of Memory was created amid the 2020 pandemic when artists had no access to family, friends, or audiences. So, the company formed a closed cohort, and the Ballet Edmonton studio became a place of safety and sanctuary. This work was initially created as a film and reimagined for the stage.
