Les Ballets Jazz de Montréal returns to perform with its signature grace and style at the Festival des Arts de Saint-Sauveur. The jewel of the Quebec dance scene presents a program featuring the works of three renowned choreographers.
Cayetano Soto presents Fuel, a work inspired by the music of Julia Wolfe and featuring twelve dancers propelled by a strange and incessant source of energy. This is a choreography of exceptional technical virtuosity and captivating beauty.
Created especially for the BJM dancers, Harry, by Barak Marshall, is a cool, hopeful, and humorous exploration of the inner conflicts and tensions experienced by every human being.
Closer, by choreographer and star dancer Benjamin Millepied, offers up a magnificent pas-de-deux that is at once minimalist, sensual, and bold, set to a score for piano composed by Philip Glass.
