This new creation for BJM - Les Ballets Jazz de Montréal by Wen Wei Wang is about urban life, particularly about night life in the city. A piece that is reflecting the sounds, the rhythms, the beats and the flashing lights of our society within an ode to love, loss, sexuality and joy. Night Box is ethereal, as the city in winter, blue, fluid as its city traffic. An urban work revealing the cultural underground of Montreal, an effervescent metropolis plunged into the digital era.

“This work is about people and everyday life through body language, energy, relationships and emotions, reflecting the world in which we are living. Many thanks to the dancers for their collaborative spirit and their generous contribution to the concept.”
- Wen Wei Wang
