The spectacular dance of Les Ballets Jazz de Montréal lights up the stage with a triple bill featuring two great international choreographers and a group of virtuoso dancers whose performances dazzle audiences everywhere they go. An explosion of sheer delight, BJM style! 

Beloved by Montreal audiences, BJM travels the world with a repertoire that showcases a very expressive athletic style blending elements of ballet and contemporary dance. This triple bill features choreographer Itzik Galili’s O Balcão de Amor, a piece infused with Caribbean heat and humour and pulsating with the energy of youth and a touch of absurdity, and Casualties of Memory, a highly physical work that celebrates life to the rhythm of percussive darbuka music. For his third collaboration with BJM, Andonis Foniadakis presents Soul, a vertiginous duo inspired by the song Ball and Chain, made famous by Janis Joplin and covered here by Quebec’s Angel Forrest. The hard-hitting music and lyrics mirror the technical and sensual intensity of the dance. Breathtaking!
