The Dance House presents their upcoming performances featuring French speaking artists: BJM (Les Ballets Jazz de Montreal) coming to Vancouver, works by FONIADAKIS, GALILI and PEDERNEIRAS!
Last presented by DanceHouse in 2013, Les Ballets Jazz de Montréal (BJM) returns with a triple bill. Rouge, choreographed by Rodrigo Pederneiras of Brazilian company Grupo Corpo, is direct, genuine and raw, an ode to resilience and a tribute to indigenous peoples and their musical and cultural legacy. For Kosmos, Greek choreographer Andonis Foniadakis finds inspiration in the world around us and the excitement people experience every day in a city; moments of reunion, gathering and let go. In Israeli choreographer Itzik Galili’s Mono Lisa, two dancers execute incredible acrobatics in a factory-like atmosphere filled with sounds and visions of iron and steel – a breathtaking pas de deux executed with absolute mastery.
