GO: Les Ballets Jazz de Montreal

From Foot’s Eva Yaa Asantewaa:
Serious fans of serious dance, you’ve paid your taxes and your dues, and now it’s time for some fun. Try [bjm_danse]–formerly, Les Ballets Jazz de MontrĂ©al–at the Joyce Theater now through Sunday, April 22. Louis Robitaille’s troupe is showing a couple of New York premieres by choreographers Rodrigo Pederneiras (from Brazil’s Grupo Corpo) and Aszure Barton that go easy on the eyes and ears, and the dancers are
charming. For details and tickets, see www.joyce.org or call 212-242-0800.

Apollinaire adds: I second the Go-emotion, Eva, though perhaps I found it more affecting than you–the Barton, at least. In any case, yes, it’s worthwhile. Here a link to my Newsday review.
Eva responds: Actually, we may be on the same page about Barton, Apollinaire. I’ve been watching her work for a while, and I think she’s a striking young talent with a sensibility like no other.

    I agree. Aszure Barton is brilliant. I loved “Les Chambres des Jacques” and highly recommend seeing it.
