About this book…
Encounters in Motion 40 Years On, the company’s first publication, was entrusted to the distinguished dance journalist Michael Crabb. Through numerous interviews with those who helped to shape Les Ballets Jazz de Montréal, the author immerses the reader in the troupe’s vibrant history. Lavishly illustrated with colour photographs, many of them published for the first time, Encounters in Motion 40 Years On is a tribute of the highest quality. Designed by Paprika, the book’s innovative format is inspired by the dancer’s stage, and the clean lines of the graphics perfectly complement the archival photos. This bilingual edition is a vivid chronicle of the famed troupe, describing its evolution and future challenges, and testifying to its profound influence on dance, both here and abroad.
