Seated in the former benches of the grand jury of the Supreme Court of British Columbia, audiences at Canadian Pacific Ballet’s most recent production are treated to an uncharacteristically intimate perspective of the company’s dance. Theatregoers reach the courtroom via the magical conveyance of a birdcage elevator drawn up by very strong birds. Once they've reached the third-floor, carved-wood perch, they need hardly worry about which of the velvet benches to take—once the action starts, principal dancers Ashley Evans, Amanda Gray, and Graham McMonagle are close at hand as they send their dramatic movements to all corners of the small but chandelier-studded space. Choreographed by the company’s artistic director, Roberta Taylor, the one-hour show flits through a series of short pieces set to charming music and the still-echoing beat of ghostly gavels.
