Leonard Cohen's Dance Me 

BJM – The Ballets Jazz de Montréal, under the Artistic Director Louis Robitaille and Executive Director, Ginette Gaulin, are pleased to announce “Dance Me”, a new and exclusive dance program inspired by Montreal poet, artist and musician, Leonard Cohen. This original piece will be performed through a series of acts, evoking the cycles of life, the colours of the seasons and nature’s true elements. To pay homage to the creative icon, Artistic Director Louis Robitaille surrounded himself with three internationally acclaimed choreographers: Annabelle Lopez Ochoa, Andonis Foniadakis and Ihsan Rustem, who will offer a blend of variety and complementary signatures.

An 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. 

Since  1998,  BJM  has  been  under  the  masterly  command  of  Artistic Director Louis Robitaille. His unerring  flair for attracting talented choreographers and presenting high calibre dance pieces keeps  raising the bar for  his  team of performers and stage professionals. Mr. Robitaille has presented works by internationally acclaimed   choreographers such as Mia Michaels, Trey McIntyre, Patrick Delcroix, Rodrigo Pederneiras, Mauro Bigonzetti,  Annabelle Lopez Ochoa, Cayetano Soto and Barak  Marshall. He is particularly interested in supporting and encouraging Canadian choreographers, composers and designers. The work of celebrated Canadian choreographers such as Dominic Dumais, Crystal Pite, Aszure Barton and more recently of Wen Wei Wang have enriched the BJM repertoire. 

BJM  is  one  of  Canada’s  most  popular  dance  companies.  It  has  presented  more  than 2,000 performances in 65 countries to more than 2 million spectators, and is a veritable ambassador of Quebec and Canadian culture worldwide. 

Beginning its 43rd  season, BJM has achieved a level of maturity and organizational  stability while remaining open to the ever-evolving form that is contemporary dance. Its pieces are  marked by dynamic physicality, virtuosity and  the  strong  personalities  of  its  performers,  all  of  which  contribute  to  the  company’s  unique  signature. BJM  has the remarkable ability to speak clearly to audiences through energetic presentations of strong, expressive and demanding dance.  

Through its performances and educational activities, BJM reaches out to spectators in Canada and abroad,  encouraging discovery,  stimulating  the  imagination,  making  dance  accessible  and  sharing  its  passion for the  art  form.  The  success  of  BJM is due to the particular alchemy that allows each new work to become the fruit of a  memorable encounter between the choreography, the dancers and the audience.
