Ballet Edmonton – Studio 19


Project Summary

A Film by Adam Kidd. A work about love, loss and distance, featuring a new contemporary ballet by Wen Wei Wang.

This project was filmed at the Ballet Edmonton rehearsal studio at the Ruth Carse Centre for dance in Edmonton, Alberta, during the pandemic of 2020/2021. It is a compilation of work we created this year. This film captures some of the challenges Ballet Edmonton encountered and highlighted the artists’ resilience and commitment to their art form.

This digital piece features interviews and highlights of two new works by choreographer Karissa Barry and Ballet Edmonton Artistic Director Wen Wei Wang. Both pieces were created for collaborative projects with Edmonton arts organizations, including the Skirts Afire Festival and the Brian Webb Dance Company. This film serves as an archive of an important moment in time when we did what we could to keep creating and discovered new ways to stay connected to our community.

“Art does not stop because the world is difficult. Dance lives inside us and reminds us we are alive.”
