A Delicate Battle - The National Ballet of Canada

Premiere: May 2nd, 2001, Sony Centre (formerly Hummingbird Centre), Toronto

* Nominated for a Dora Mavor Moore Award for Outstanding Choreography

This piece was my debut mainstage work for a major ballet company and remains close to my heart. It has been performed in various cities in Canada and the US, and was staged by the West Australian Ballet in 2003. The survival of the arts in a chilly, corporate environment was my initial inspiration.
