Creation: The driving force behind Les Grands Ballets
A true driving force of Les Grands Ballets, creation lies at the heart of the company’s mission. Beginning with the arrival of Gradimir Pankov as Artistic Director (2000-2017), the company has focused its energy on creation, commissionning new work from both established choreographers and up-and-coming artists from around the world. Innovating through the production of new works is essential to ensure the growth and longevity of Les Grands Ballets.
Creation allows the company to:
- Stand out, while offering new and original productions that will meet the demands of audiences and international presenters alike;
- Establish its identity, while expanding its repertoire and contributing to the cultural heritage of Quebec and Canada;
- Encourage the collaboration with the world’s finest artists, thus ensuring the quality of its productions;
- Contribute to the socio-economic development of the cultural sector, by creating sources of revenue for dozens of choreographers, designers, artisans and technicians
