Civic Theatres Toronto today announced the return of Leonard Cohen’s Dance Me, from the internationally-renowned Montreal-based dance company BJM – Les Ballets Jazz de Montréal, on Friday, March 1, 2019.
This multidisciplinary piece, inspired by the work of the late poet, artist, and songwriter, Leonard Cohen, completely sold out Toronto’s 3,191-seat Sony Centre for the Performing Arts when it made its Toronto premiere in December, 2017.
Guided by artistic director Louis Robitaille and stage director Eric Jean, and inspired by Cohen’s inimitable music, renowned choreographers Annabelle Lopez Ochoa, Andonis Foniadakis and Ihsan Rustem have created a spectacular new multimedia workthat brings their own unique but entirely complementary personalities to the show’s different sections. As the work unfolds, their movements create a powerful and profound choreographic world that aptly reflects Cohen’s artistic legacy.
Featuring 15 songs selected from Leonard Cohen’s vast catalogue, the selected songs underpin the artist’s recurring and universal themes of love, spirituality, poetry, society, artificial paradise, inspiration, creativity and the quest for freedom.
