taqəš, which means “to return something” in Ayajuthem, the language belonging to the Homalco, Klahoose, K’omoks and Tla’amin Nations.

Join us at the Chilliwack Cultural Centre for an unforgettable evening with Ballet Kelowna. This exceptional performance features Taqəš, a powerful and evocative piece choreographed by Cameron Fraser-Monroe. Taqəš blends ballet with Coast Salish, Grass, Hoop, and contemporary dance to tell the traditional story of “Raven Returns the Water.” This unique performance beautifully weaves together various dance styles to celebrate the rich cultural heritage and stories of the Homalco, Klahoose, K’omoks, and Tla’amin Nations.

Adding to the evening’s excitement is The Cowboy Act Suite, a satirical and high-energy piece also by Fraser-Monroe. This performance promises to captivate audiences with its dynamic choreography and engaging storytelling. Ballet Kelowna’s Taqəš and Other Works showcases the diversity and creativity of contemporary ballet, highlighting both traditional and modern elements in a vibrant and compelling way.

Experience the artistry, innovation, and cultural richness that Ballet Kelowna brings to the stage in this not-to-be-missed season opening event.
