The Dreamers Ever Leave You
The Dreamers Ever Leave You was performed to sold-out crowds at The Art Gallery of Ontario from August 30th to September 10th.
“ …a thrilling and affirming victory for the art form. This is a ballet that has mass appeal and it does so by becoming both an extreme and simplified version of itself. If you’ve never been to the ballet before, this is the kind of unique, strikingly atmospheric and emotionally charged experience that could hook you for life…Binet is more than a breath of fresh air in the ballet world; he’s like a blast of Novocain. Here’s a choreographer with a rich and extensive imagination who wants to do things differently and clearly has the skills to realize his ideas. He’s an artist who is asking questions of what ballet should and can do, and you can see these questions in his multivalent and technically intricate work. You can also see that he wants to push himself further, and I suspect we’ll be seeing bold innovation in the years ahead.” - The Globe and Mail
Wild Space: Terra Incognita
Reimagining how ballet is created, presented and shared. Coming soon to Toronto, London, Copenhagen and Amsterdam.
“Binet has a great facility for limpid, articulate movement and, as this small but ambitious production amply demonstrates, he also thinks outside the box.” – The Times
