The four-year-old Festival des Arts de Saint Sauveur has already become a major player in Montreal's cultural development.<P>This international ballet festival has companies from N. America and Europe. Among them, '...DanceGalaxy also has Forsythe in its repertoire. It performs his controversial Artifact II in two shows that end the festival. Aware that DanceGalaxy was a shoestring operation, Forsythe gave the ballet to co-founders Judith Fugate and Medhi Bahiri.' <P>[dead link removed] <BR><p>[This message has been edited by Admin (edited July 01, 2002).]

Linda Howe Beck has lots of fun with Ballet Jorgen. A possibility for exchange of works with Maximum Dance, shag?<P><BR> <BLOCKQUOTE><font size="1" face="Verdana, Arial">quote:</font><HR><BR>The Ballet Jorgen is so darn good it begs a question: why don't we see more of it?<P>Judging from Tuesday's performance by the immensely appealing Toronto company, that's what spectators at the Festival des Arts de Saint-Sauveur were asking themselves after they finally stopped applauding.<P>The 10-dancer Toronto group shared the program with Montreal star dancer Louis Robitaille in the world premiere of the first tailor-made solo of his long career.<HR></BLOCKQUOTE> <BR>[dead link removed] <BR><p>[This message has been edited by Admin (edited July 01, 2002).]

Linda Howe Beck previews Amy Seiwert's 'I Want Inside' which premieres at Saint-Sauveur.<P> <BLOCKQUOTE><font size="1" face="Verdana, Arial">quote:</font><HR>Amy Seiwert is a name to remember. Not only because she won last season's choreographic competition at the Festival des Arts de Saint-Sauveur, or because she's going to premiere a made-in-residence work next week. But because as a rare woman choreographer in a field dominated by men, she dares to change the image of women in ballet.<P>Schooled in the Russian classics and the Balanchine neoclassics, Seiwert, 30, continues dancing other people's works while squeezing time to choreograph her own ballets into her off-hours. <HR></BLOCKQUOTE><BR>[dead link removed] <BR><p>[This message has been edited by Admin (edited July 01, 2002).]

Maximu's always open to collaboration. It's funny that you mentioned me in this thread, Stuart. Lara and I are looking at a couple of properties within 15 minutes of Saint Saveur. Match this festival with cheap lake front due to the Canadian dollar and 5 ski hills within 15 minutes plus white water rafting equals many countless nights analyzing bank books. I even get to pretend I'm still a canuck.<P>We saw a flyer for the festival and it looks fantastic. Rambert is next weekend, I think and Complexions is one of my top five compnaies in all of dance.<P>Wasn't a fan of Jorgen the last couple of times I saw them, but that was a couple of years ago.

Yeah, Stuart, better have a word with Mr Bruce. Did the company actually travel overseas and not inform you of it? Image
