BJM - VANISHING MÉLODIES – Music by Patrick Watson

Théâtre Maisonneuve From November 2 To 6, 2021

To mark their 50th anniversary, the BJM present VANISHING MÉLODIES, a danced foray into the poetic universe of Patrick Watson, the Montreal singer and musician with the inimitable voice. A guaranteed spellbinder.

After the unprecedented success of Dance Me, a tribute to Leonard Cohen, BJM – Les Ballets Jazz de Montréal return with a dazzling new offering, on the threshold of a pivotal stage in their evolution. In the middle of the night, a woman waits, alone, in a bus shelter. Memories wash over her like a wave. A strange dance begins between this woman whose memory is crumbling and the people who have been part of her life. Linked by this thread, dance, theatre, songs, music and video combine in an impressionistic tableau choreographed by Anne Plamondon and Juliano Nunes and directed by Éric Jean. Set to the rhythms of 20 or so of Patrick Watson’s captivating songs, drawn from his entire repertoire, this dreamlike and sensual large-scale production provides a prime showcase for a guest actress and the 14 fabulous performers of the company, a perennial audience favourite. Long live the BJM!
