Details: DanceWorks  presents  e-motion tour, featuring work by three outstanding choreographic voices from Ballet Edmonton, as a triple-bill program. The event opens with Persistence of Memory by celebrated choreographer and Ballet Edmonton Artistic Director Wen Wei Wang, and follows with two new works by a pair of exciting fresh voices in contemporary ballet, Diego Ramalho presenting Valei-mi and Dorotea Saykakly presenting BLACK MOON.

Persistence of Memory by Wen Wei Wang was created amid the 2020 pandemic, and fueled by the constant need for human contact. This work was initially created as a film and reimagined for the stage. Valei-me by Diego Ramalho is a contemplation on how we are influenced by where we first “belonged” exploring how music lives in the nervous system and reflects an unconscious sense of identity connected to a place. And  Dorotea Saykaly’s BLACK MOON explores the human relationship of desire and faith while utilizing a mythical sci-fi approach to storytelling and image-making.
