More Information


French Canada’s leading ballet company will perform Israeli choreographer Ohad Naharin’s full evening length work Minus One at Irvine Barclay Theatre. This is the southern California premiere of Minus One.

Minus One is comprised of seven contemporary ballets (Zachacha, Sabotage Baby, Black Milk, Passomezzo, Anaphaza, Queens of Golub, and Mabul), featuring 85 uninterrupted minutes of unrestrained, incredibly mesmerizing dance. Free-wheeling in all aspects—movement, music and emotional impact- this work requires a company of the scale and sophistication of Les Grands Ballet Canadiens to achieve all of Minus One’s humor, pathos, and exhilaration. Ohad Naharin’s work has been seen  previously at the Barclay in performances by his own company, Batsheva, and works performed by Hubbard Street Dance Chicago.

Les Grands Ballets Canadiens de Montréal is dedicated to bringing ballet in all its forms to audiences everywhere. Since Gradimir Pankov took the helm as artistic director in 2000, the company has continually stimulated, amazed and moved audiences with its deep passion for dance. Pankov has focused his energies on staging original works. In just a few years he has commissioned memorable, eloquent ballets like The Queen of Spades_, Noces_, The Lost Shoe (Cinderella), _TooT, and most recently, La Bête et la Belle_.
