DonQuixote2Ballet Espressivo was founded in 2003 by Donna Greenberg, the company’s artistic director, choreographer, and dance film-maker. The company performed extensively at such venues as The Harbourfront Centre, Toronto Centre for the Arts, The Mississauga Living Arts Centre, The Betty Oliphant Theatre, Series 8:08, and TIDF Toronto International Dance Festival. Ballet Espressivo also formed creative partnerships with such organizations as the Bach Children’s Chorus and Sinfonia Toronto. The company was dedicated to producing distinctive choreography enriched with elements from such wide-ranging traditions as eighteenth-century ballet and modern dance, while remaining true to the technique of classical ballet, works that unfolded within the framework of innovative narratives. Our vision was, through the language of ballet, to promote an understanding of the art of dance and to create and perform works enriching, enlivening, and accessible. Although Ballet Espressivo is no longer actively creating and performing new stageworks, something of the company’s output can be relived by exploring this photo and film archive, which captures moments and parts of past works.
