After being forced to cancel previous performances of Les Ballets Jazz de Montréal because of Hurricane Sandy, we are pleased to announce that the company will perform at The Joyce in December.
Please join us in welcoming these talented artists to our stage.
Les Ballets Jazz de Montréal takes on the sounds, rhythms, and music of the city in Night Box, its high-voltage new piece by provocative choreographer Wen Wei Wang. Combining contemporary ballet with street dance, Night Box explores love, loss, sexuality, and joy. The work is "brilliantly theatrical, in turns witty, poignant and unsettling." (The National Post) Wen Wei Wang collaborates with Montréal fashion design duo UNTTLD to reveal the full spectrum of the city at night--its private spaces, clubs, and streets--against a backdrop of darkness that bathes these spaces in light to evoke a refreshing perspective inspired by urban street life. The program also includes a new work by internationally acclaimed choreographer Barak Marshall, and Zero in On by Cayetano Soto, an innovative piece highlighting the Spanish choreographer's energetic style.
