If you don’t already know Les Ballets Jazz de Montréal, the company’s name is sufficient clue to its unique approach to dance: eclectic and athletic, infusing a multitude of styles and cultures and drawing from an international cadre of choreographers. This weekend the troupe performs a program of three diverse works at Mass MoCA in collaboration with Jacob’s Pillow Dance Festival.

“Night Box,” an urban pas de deux created by Canadian choreographer Wen Wei Wang, combines ballet with street dance. “Zero In On,” by Spain’s Cayetano Soto, features a score by Philip Glass. And Israeli-American Barak Marshall’s “Harry” uses a musical palette that ranges from folk songs to big-band swing to Balkan beatboxing.

March 2 at 8 p.m. and March 3 at 3 p.m., $25-$39 ($10 for kids under 16), Hunter Center, Mass MoCA, North Adams, (413) 662-2111, massmoca.org.
