Ballet Kelowna: The Cowboy Act Suite & Other Works

Tuesday, September 24, 2024 7:30 pm - 9:00 pm Key City Theatre

The Cowboy Act Suite and Other Works program features a stunning lineup of signature pieces from Ballet Kelowna’s contemporary ballet repertoire. This high-energy program includes Simone Orlando’s thoughtful Delicate Fire, Seiji Suzuki’s poignant Stolen Tide, and Cameron Fraser-Monroe’s satirical The Cowboy Act Suite. Audiences can expect a diverse and captivating experience.

Delicate Fire by Simone Orlando reimagines the mythology of Aphrodite and Adonis, exploring their emotional legend. Initially developed through a fellowship from the New York Choreographic Institute, this dynamic work transitions from fast and rhythmic to slow and ethereal. Dedicated to Canadian composer Jocelyn Morlock, it is set to two of her compositions.

Stolen Tide by Seiji Suzuki is a heartfelt reminder to cherish moments spent with loved ones. This work highlights the importance of social connections, with a fast-paced opening that studies the impact of a traumatic event, giving way to compassion and empathy in its touching second movement.

Rounding out the program is Cameron Fraser-Monroe's The Cowboy Act Suite, which explores the dichotomy between "Cowboys and Indians." This work challenges the colonial perspective often seen in historical depictions. Fraser-Monroe’s intuitive take on the Cowboy’s swagger reinterprets history through the eyes of an Indigenous director, offering a fresh and thought-provoking narrative.
