The electroacoustic sound score I composed for Wen Wei Wang’s Swan, which premiered at Ballet BC, is being remounted by Ballet Edmonton this weekend!
Sending my love to Edmonton and to Wen Wei Wang of Wen Wei Dance and Ballet_Edmonton <3
Chapter Two: NIGHTbox and SWAN
The evening will feature two works by Artistic Director Wen Wei Wang: NIGHTbox and SWAN. First commissioned for Ballet BC in 2016, SWAN is an arresting and beautifully presented reimagining of the iconic characters of Swan Lake set to the music of Stravinsky and seen through a contemporary lens. Powerful and stunning – it is not to be missed.
“…even modernists—perhaps especially modernists—will thrill to this work’s witty gender play, its erotic partnering, and Sammy Chien’s phantasmagorical music, made by combining Peter Ilich Tchaikovsky’s original ballet score with electronics and an obsessive tambourine.”—The Georgia Straight
