Les Ballets Jazz de Montreal

In Harry, Fuel, Zero In On, choreography by Barak Marshall and Cayetano Soto. When Les Ballets Jazz de Montréal was founded in 1972, modern dance didn’t feature much in Canada, and jazz dance, with its showy fusion of Broadway, modern and ballet, was all the rage. Times have changed and the company, directed by Louis Robitaille has a broader dance aesthetic. True to its original mission it continues in the spirit of exploration, developing new works, collaborating with choreographers of diverse styles and backgrounds. The excellent ensemble performs Fuel and Zero In On by Cayetano Soto of Brazil, and a newly commissioned work by American-born, Israel-based Barak Marshall. The diverse pieces contrast dynamic, virtuosic small ensemble and solo work with the energy and power of the full company.
