Les Ballets Jazz de Montréal Rouge | Closer | KosmosThursday, February 16 20177:30pmOpening doors time / heure d’ouverture des portes6:30pmBuyMembers $36 | Regular $39An internationally renowned contemporary dance company, BJM–Les Ballets Jazz de Montréal is a repertory company that presents a hybrid form of dance that combines the aesthetics of classical ballet and embraces many other different styles of dance. Founded in 1972 by Geneviève Salbaing, Eva von Gencsy and Eddy Toussaint, the company has pursued its own unique path over the decades. Very contemporary in its current approach, BJM performances are sexy, explosive, original and accessible, and its superb dancers are widely acclaimed. The term “jazz” in the name refers more to a “jazzing up” of classical ballet rather than a musical or dance style. BJM is one of Canada’s most popular dance companies. It has presented more than 2,000 performances in 66 countries to more than two million spectators, and is a veritable ambassador of Quebec and Canadian culture worldwide.Read more...
They will present three distinct pieces on the Capitol Theatre stage.
In this new work for BJM, the choreographer draws his inspiration from the world we live in, the frenetic pace of everyday urban life. His observations were the trigger for creating choreography inspired by the movements of crowds, moments of agitation, and the hustle and bustle of the city. Andonis searches for a counterbalance, bringing beauty to the fore and turning frenetic movement into a dance that brings people together in a joyous, liberating fashion. This is a dance based on clear movement, where a mingling clan of dancers must come to terms with the presence of others. Unlike the restrictions imposed by modern life, it is a moment for reconnecting, for releasing tensions, for coming together and letting go. Once again this work bears the distinctive BJM signature characterized by pure, festive energy, a celebration of humanity – its beauty and its creative force.
Set to composer Philip Glass’s MAD RUSH, the duet Closer was created in 2006 for Céline Cassone and Sébastien Marcovici (principal dancer with the New York City Ballet) and presented at the Maison de la Danse in Lyon, France. For BJM, the duet will be performed by the magnetic Céline Cassone and Alexander Hille. Performed and acclaimed on several world stages, Closer is a voluptuous and vibrant exchange, imbued with an intense yet simple sensuality, that of the tension between two bodies.
Over the course of twenty minutes, Céline is carried, pulled and lifted with movements of crystalline beauty and delicacy, rousing the sentiments of the audience, who are transported into the couple’s passionate relationship.
Enhancing the work is a live performance of Glass’s piano piece, MAD RUSH, reverberating throughout the hall, evoking the purity of the dancers’ emotions.
Based on original music by the brothers Grand, with a nod and a wink to traditional Amerindian music (throat singing, the sound of waves, the rustling wind, the cry of wild geese, rumbling thunder), this new piece for BJM by Rodrigo Pederneiras is an ode to resilience, a discreet tribute to Native peoples and their musical and cultural legacy. Underlying the work are themes of confrontation, the clash of cultures, power struggles between the dominant and the dominated, and what it means to belong to a community. Direct, genuine and raw, the dance is performed vigorously, at full throttle. The ensemble dances as a single entity, suggesting by the force of its impact the idea of escape or flight, a human migration, anxiety swelling with each new movement. Gathering momentum as they are carried away by the implacable rhythm of the music, the dancers convey drama and strength, a sense of urgency, of pain and separation, surging relentlessly toward a point of crisis until the excess of impulse and tension is exorcised, reaching at last a state of grace.
