The taqəš and Other Works program features a stunning line-up of signature works from Ballet Kelowna’s contemporary ballet repertoire. With a new, uplifting ensemble work by Robert Stephen, Guillaume Côté’s riveting Bolero, and Cameron Fraser-Monroe’s powerful and compelling taqəš, this dynamic program promises to captivate audiences.
Cameron Fraser-Monroe brings his classical ballet training, knowledge of traditional Coast Salish, Grass, and Hoop Dance, and experience as a contemporary dancer to taqəš [tawKESH], which means “to return something” in Ayajuthem, the language belonging to the Homalco, Klahoose, K’omoks and Tla’amin Nations. Set to several songs by Polaris Prize-winning composer and singer Jeremy Dutcher, taqəš follows the traditional story “Raven Returns the Water,” centred around p̓oho (raven) and walθ (frog).
