The Clown, The Strongman and The Ballerina

The Teck Family Series continues at The Bailey Theatre with Petrouchka by Motus O Dance Theatre.

The Teck Family Series continues at The Bailey Theatre in Trail on Sunday, Nov. 12 with Petrouchka by Motus O Dance Theatre.

The story of three marionettes brought to life by a wizard, follows Petrouchka, the little clown with the big heart, as he goes on an amazing adventure to impress the ballerina.

In the hands of Motus O, the music and story of Igor Stravinsky’s original ballet come alive for a young modern audience with dance, mime, drama and physical comedy. A piece that was originally commissioned by the Royal Conservatory.

MOTUS O, a Canadian dance theatre company, has a unique trio of Co-Artistic Directors who sound like the punchline to a joke. This team, an American gymnast, an Australian sheep shearer and a Canadian figure skater, use their different skills to create dynamic and dramatic shows that relish the physical – all with a touch of humour. The company has been working with educators and students of all ages across North America for over twenty-five years, and their stellar reputation is due to their imaginative, physical theatre.

“The performance was outstanding and extremely entertaining……. I highly recommend MOTUS O Dance theatre… it was the most polished and professional show…” – Mark Stadnyk, Principal, Holy Cross, Catholic School, Toronto.

*“No better company than Motus O Dance theatre to do a new version of Petrouchka. Visual humour is the forte of this modern dance company”* – The Toronto Star

Local dance school Kootenay Danceworks will be sharing their skills as they open for this fantastic show. The Teck Family Series shows are recommended for families with kids aged 5-10. The upcoming shows in the series are Mr. Fish the science, magic and circus guy, and Story Theatre’s Rumpelstiltskin—-all on Sundays at 2:00 p.m.

Tickets are on sale now at $15 per show.
