Being and Nothingness (Part 1) 

“Côté has crafted a riveting seven-minute solo for Greta Hodgkinson, in which she appears to be battling some powerful inner demons.” — National Post 

“Côté was able to provoke a thoughtful expression of the inner struggle that lies at the heart of our desire to exercise our free will.” — Elle Canada 

The Tempest

“Ratmansky’s major achievement….Rings true as both an homage to Shakespeare and an accomplishment in itself…a Tempest to savour.”
— New York Observer

“The ballet’s poetry – reminding us that Mr. Ratmansky is the most poetic choreographer in ballet today – is loveliest in the pas de deux for the innocent lovers’ Miranda and Ferdinand.” — The New York Times
