Spectre de la Rose

“Impressively original... mysterious, innovative and enthralling” — Channel Rivera, Cannes, France

“The Monte-Carlo Ballet danced Marco Goecke’s Spectre de la Rose under a rain of flower petals: a wonder!” — performArts 

Opus 19/The Dreamer

“This subtle and mysteriously moody work reveals more with each performance.” — Toronto Star 

“An elusive, romantic piece that demands technical virtuosity from its central male figure… the entire Opus 19 cast moved with glorious musicality… they created a midnight walk through an exotic dreamscape.” — The Hamilton Spectator 

“A complex work of timeless modernity, blending the precise geometry of the works of Balanchine with something more edgy, modern and downright American that is truly exciting.” — Toronto Sun 

the second detail

“A wonderful spectacle of impeccable footwork and light, precise port de bras; these are dancers working at their peak, and it was an impressive start to the evening.” — Dance International 

“Uncategorizable, distinctive, riveting, surprising, and deconstructive” — CJSF Radio 

“Great stuff, brilliantly danced.” — The Calgary Herald 

“The National attacks William Forsythe’s 1991 work the second detail with chilly precision and irony.” — NOW Magazine
