An interview with Eva Kolarova
of Les Grands Ballets Canadiens.
This time, no fewer than 13 choreographers are presenting works, including Eva Kolarova, a 24-year-old Czech-born ballerina who joined Les Grands just last year. Kolarova’s contribution consists of two extracts from her hour-long work called Metamorphosis of Love. Kolarova is not waiting, however, until the end of the month to show what she can do. Independently of À Suivre, she’s staging the entire Metamorphosis of Love Saturday night and Sunday afternoon at Théâtre La Chapelle.
Kolarova is quite candid about her choreographic ambition. Not long after arriving in Montreal (her first trip to North America), she broached the subject of choreography with Les Grands’ artistic director, Gradimir Pankov. At the time, À Suivre was yet to be scheduled.
