Cinq choses à savoir

  1. 1Siphesihle (“Siphe”) was the subject of the 2019 Beyond Moving documentary, which follows his journey from Zolani, South Africa to Canada’s National Ballet School and The National Ballet of Canada.
  2. 2He choreographed his first work for YOU dance, the company’s largest community engagement program, during the COVID-19 pandemic in 2020 to be performed virtually by the RBC Apprentices. Siphe will create a new work for the National Ballet’s main stage in mars 2022.
  3. 3He performed a featured role in the world premiere of Angels’ Atlas by Crystal Pite, who said: “Creating with him felt like having unlimited access to the work’s core content: the body as a location, a place where being is temporarily held and shaped. You don’t want his dancing to be ephemeral, you just want to have it, hold it, share it with everyone forever.”
  4. 4His repertoire includes Benvolio in Romeo and Juliet, Bluebird in The Sleeping Beauty, Lewis Carroll/White Rabbit in Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland and Puck in The Dream.
  5. 5He dances a range of classical and contemporary works, such as The Nutcracker, Giselle, The Winter’s Tale, The Four Seasons, The Vertiginous Thrill of Exactitude, Chroma, Night, Orpheus Alive and many others.

La Belle au bois dormant
“With his debut as Bluebird in Rudolf Nureyev’s production of The Sleeping Beauty last spring, National Ballet of Canada corps member Siphesihle November quickly established himself as the rightful heir to one of the most challenging male parts in the classical repertoire.”
– Dance Magazine

The Dream
“His Puck had a charm, buoyancy and mischievousness that made the role very much November’s own.”
— Dance International

L’Être et le néant
“Corps de ballet member Siphesihle November was brilliant in "The Sink" – an athletic solo that starts with the mundane act of shaving and ends with floor work and high flying jumps.”
– Dance View Times
