Les Ballets Jazz de Montréal: Zip Zap Zoom

By Julye Huggins
Zip Zap Zoom :  BJM-Danse

Tonight through January 22nd Les Ballets Jazz de Montréal (BJM Danse) presents three hot works at Place des Arts in Montréal: Rossini Cards, Zero In On and Zip Zap Zoom. The above video is a preview of the latter, choreographed by Annabelle Lopez Ochoa. The work takes us into an internet game world where the ultimate goal of winning and virtual identities are manifest, resonating with the escapism of the player. According to the company’s website, “the choreographer is searching for the ‘real’ emotions and impulses between the ‘avatars’ (alter ego’s used on Internet forums and other communities) inside the world of electronic music and virtual reality.”The performers in this video are Céline Cassone, Alexandra Gherchman, Christina Bodie, James Gregg, Tony Bougiouris, Nathan Madden, Robert Knwoles, Brett Andrew Taylor and Youri de Wilde.Be sure to check out the October 2004 issue of The Dance Current print magazine for an item on BJM Danse.
