A technology-infused reimagining of the iconic ballet masterwork that examines the ways social media has leveraged an unexpected change on the nature of modern love and relationships.


Vancouver’s own award-winning Joshua Beamish brings his innovative choreographic vision to the Vancouver Playhouse, featuring an all-star lineup of some of North America’s finest ballet artists from American Ballet Theatre, The National Ballet of Canada, and Pennsylvania Ballet. This undeniably modern take on a beloved classic will explore our understandings of love, sex, and relationships in a world of dating apps, Snapchat stories, and Instagram. Using motion-captured digital projections and bold visual effects, this is Giselle reimagined as you’ve never seen her before.


@giselle is a bracing new vision of a classic tale, set in a world that looks a lot like yours.
