An Homage to Billie Holiday

An Homage to Billie Holiday

Oct. 4th 7:30 p.m. Oct. 5th 2:30 p.m.

Timms Centre for the Arts

An homage to the soul-drenching music of jazz singer Billie Holiday, this piece reflects the singer’s blend of technical mastery and unparalleled soul with dancing of intense physicality and great humanity. Holiday—or Lady Day, as she was otherwise known—was a tortured performer, and is best known for songs such as “Strange Fruit,” and “Body and Soul.” This features a mixed program that ranges from classical to contemporary.

Featuring choreography by Alysa Pires.

Timms Centre for the Arts

The fourth in a series of collaborations with Edmonton artists, this performance features the a cappella sextet 6 Minute Warning, singing their own original pop/rock compositions. Mosaic IV: Vocal Beat is the story of a small-town man who struggles to maintain his roots amid the frantic storm of city life. He attempts to piece together his newfound life with an urban woman, one born of the city, while weathering the changes that she brings.

Orpheus and Eurydice

Orpheus and Eurydice

April 20th 7:30 p.m. April 21th 2:30 p.m.

Timms Centre for the Arts

Orpheus and Eurydice is set to the stunning music of Christoph Glück’s opera. This three-act ballet takes Orpheus to the Underworld to find his love, Eurydice. Orpheus is warned not to look upon Eurydice or she will die. Despite Eurydice’s sorrow, Orpheus refuses her his gaze, but temptation gives way and Eurydice perishes. Amore the Cupid intervenes and restores the couple to each other in a joyful celebration of true love.
