Les Ballets Jazz de Montréal showcases the dramatic, emotive work of three gifted contemporary choreographers during this Toronto premiere. While the work may be new, such performances are a regular fixture of the Quebec-based ensemble’s repertoire. The company is known for its commitment to daring, wholly original work—the “jazz” in its name indicates a willingness to “jazz up” the aesthetics of classic ballet—and has gained international acclaim for its evocative efforts.
- Closer: Benjamin Millepied’s duet, set to Philip Glass’s Mad Rush, tells the passionate story of a young couple by exploring the voltage that can pass between two bodies.
- Kosmos: Choreographed by Andonis Foniadakis, Kosmos creates a kind of cityscape from a mass of bodies who move both as individuals and as one. Created for BJM, the dance captures the energetic celebration of humanity that stamps much of the company’s work.
- Harry: Israeli-American choreographer Barak Marshall dissects peoples’ great power to overcome conflict in this work, created specifically for the BJM dancers. The artists dance to a diverse soundtrack throughout, comprised of alt-jazz, Israeli folk music, and more traditional classical offerings.
Sony Centre For The Performing Arts
The largest soft-seat theatre in Canada, the Sony Centre for the Performing Arts is perhaps most famous for its overhanging marquee outside. The diagonal canopy and its snake-like rows of lights were restored to their original form in 2010, along with the facility’s wood, brass, and marble accents. Inside the lobby, York Wilson’s mural, The Seven Lively Arts, fills eyes with fractured, panoramic representations of various artistic media, from slanted musical staffs to menacing Greek theatre masks.
