Les Grands Ballets Canadiens de Montreal:
Rodin / Claudel (Quanz)
Les Grands Ballets Canadiens de Montréal gives Canadian choreographer Peter Quanz the chance to realize his long-cherished hope to create a full-length work about the torrid romance between Auguste Rodin and Camille Claudel, portraying the intimate lives of the two artists and their shared passion for sculpture. "I believe that their relationship intensified the emotional content of their sculpture," he explains. "Camille Claudel was a tragic figure, a victim of her time and of the men who were closest to her. This is a story of passion, love and betrayal."
A native of Baden, near Kitchener, Ontario, Peter Quanz is one of Canada's most in-demand choreographers. A recipient of the 2005 Clifford E. Lee Award, Canada's national award for young choreographers, he became the first Canadian to receive a commission from the legendary Kirov Ballet (Mariinsky Theatre, Russia) in 2007. Three years later, he launched his own company, Q Dance. He has created some thirty works for the world’s leading ballet companies, including The National Ballet of Canada, American Ballet Theatre, the Royal Ballet (Linbury Theatre), the National Ballet of Cuba, Hong Kong Ballet, Royal Winnipeg Ballet and Pennsylvania Ballet. He is known for the finesse and precision of his gestural vocabulary, the originality of his combinations, his mastery of choreographic composition and ability to hold audiences spellbound.
