Blue until June

« A  stunning first image was of a blond woman wrapped in fabric, arms  raised, purple skirt extending from her waist to the borders of the  stage. With statuesque calm, she rotated to the deep bluesy swing of  "St. Louis Blues," slowly uncovering the rest of the dancers. Slow,  deliberate walks were met with swift, effortless partnering. Men lifted  women high in the air, swinging them back and forth under "moonlight."  Women responded with stoic pirouettes attached, almost by accident, to  male partners who supported their bodies with cool reserve.
Using the words of songs to narrate each vignette, McIntyre's most  powerful tale, "Fool That I Am," is a chilling condemnation of '50s-era  repression. Beautifully danced by Eric Beauchesne and Edgar Zendejas,  the two men discreetly touch hands till one must leave the other for a  woman waiting at the stage's edge. Woman in hand, he leaves, briefly  looking back at the love he cannot have."
- Ninotchka Bennahum, Denver Post

"In Trey McIntyre's Blue Until June was a moving embodiment of the live romantic music sung by the soulful Faye Butler."
- Pointe Magazine

"Choreographer Trey McIntyre is really making the  rounds. Open a dance program book at the Kravis Center -- for Ballet  Florida, Hubbard Street Dance Chicago and, early next season, for Miami  City Ballet -- and you'll find the young American listed. McIntyre's  one-act ballet Blue Until June (2001) wasn't just the program opener; it  was an eye-opener. It beautifully captures the innate desperation of  the blues. Let-it-all-hang-out lyrics come through in each dance  gesture, attitude, step and shimmy. As much ballet as body language, the  32-minute Blue requires spirited acting (and) spot-on technique."
- Palm Beach Post

"Songs by blues thrush Etta James provides the  backdrop for Trey McIntyre's sultry "Blues Until June," a 2000 piece  that packs a wallop. Young master McIntyre has achieved great success  with this ballet, which sets "St. Louis Blues," "At Last," "One For My  Baby" and other gems into fluid motion."
- Philadelphia Daily News

"The duets between the men and women have an  aggressive intensity to them that often turn the partners into  combatants. It's exciting movement set against James' often wrenching  vocals."
- The Cincinnati Post

Ballet Jazz Montréal

Né  de la collaboration entre Geneviève Salbaing, Eva Von Genscy et Eddy  Toussaint en 1972, BJM – Les Ballets Jazz de Montréal, est une compagnie  de répertoire qui crée, produit et diffuse des spectacles de ballet  contemporain basés sur la technique, la rigueur et l’esthétique du  ballet classique, tant sur les scènes locales, nationales  qu’internationales.

La compagnie offre à ses artistes  un entrainement professionnel de haut niveau en ballet, permet aux  chorégraphes de réputation internationale de développer leur propre  recherche en accord avec l’identité de BJM, et génère enfin un  répertoire exclusif et accessible à tout public. Grand ambassadeur de la  danse québécoise dans le monde, les BJM offrent aujourd’hui un produit  artistique, sexy, explosif, original, accessible et remarqué par  l’excellence de son exécution.

Dès sa nomination comme directeur artistique en 1998,  Louis Robitaille réoriente la compagnie vers un public curieux de  découvrir des formes chorégraphiques inédites. Il associe la compagnie à  des figures montantes de la danse contemporaine, mais méconnues ici du  grand public, notamment Crystal Pite, Aszure Barton, etc. Puis, la  compagnie collabore avec des chorégraphes de renommée internationale  tels que Mauro Bigonzetti, Andonis Foniadakis, Itzik Galili, Annabelle  Lopez Ochoa, Barak Marshall, Benjamin Millepied, Rodrigo Pederneiras,  Ihsan Rustem, Cayetano Soto, etc. Plus récemment, la direction  artistique rentre dans une phase de création qui va privilégier les  créations multidisciplinaires en associant le ballet à d’autres  disciplines artistiques telles que le théâtre, la vidéo et la musique.

Toutes les œuvres réalisées pour les BJM ont pour fil  conducteur une esthétique exerçant une influence positive. Avec  l’accessibilité et la qualité comme valeurs-clés de sa démarche, la  compagnie réussit à allier plaisir et créations fortes, expressives et  exigeantes. La personnalité distincte et le haut calibre de ses  artistes-interprètes en assurent son succès et son rayonnement. À  travers leurs productions, leurs représentations et leurs activités  éducatives, les BJM rejoignent les publics d’ici et de l’étranger pour  encourager la découverte, stimuler l’imagination, démocratiser la danse  et partager leur passion pour cette discipline. Avec plus de 2  500 spectacles donnés dans 68 pays et une assistance de plus de deux  millions et demi d’amateurs, les BJM se considèrent comme de véritables  ambassadeurs de la danse et de la vitalité artistique québécoise  canadienne dans le monde.

En 2016, le prix Rideau Hommage est remis à la compagnie  et à son directeur artistique, Louis Robitaille, pour souligner le  rayonnement et la présence assidue des BJM sur les scènes du Québec.

En 2017, c’est 45 ans d’histoire, de ballets, de tournées, de rencontres avec le public, qu’ont célébré les BJM.
