Les Ballets Jazz de Montréal

Dance Me / Music of Leonard Cohen

September 26 – 28, 2019
Zellerbach Theatre
PLA Presents
Philadelphia Premiere

A riveting homage to famed poet/singer/songwriter, Leonard Cohen. With a soundtrack of Cohen's most beloved songs, choreographers Annabelle Lopez Ochoa, Andonis Foniadakis and Ihsan Rustem created a multidisciplinary work that evokes the cycles of human existence as described in Cohen's deeply insightful music and poems. Dance Me paints a multifaceted portrait of the man who gave us "Hallelujah" and "So Long, Marianne", his words finding profound, new meaning though dance.

September 26-28
Before and after evening performances of Les Ballets Jazz de Montréal, be sure to head to our Outdoor Plaza for REBO(U)ND, a visual art experience that epitomizes the feelings of abandon and liberty that dancing can evoke. In REBO(U)ND, dancers utilize a trampoline to showcase suspension, the ephemeral instant when a performer floats; the second between momentum and falling, between liberty and unbalance, just as the body seems to defy space and time.
