BALLETS JAZZ MONTREAL: DANCE ME
MUSIC BY LEONARD COHEN
Organizer: THESSALONIKI CONCERT HALL
Dance Me, music by Leonard Cohen is an exclusive creation inspired by the rich and profound work of Montreal-based poet, artist and songwriter Leonard Cohen. Approved by Cohen during his lifetime, under the artistic direction of Louis Robitaille and the strong, bold dramaturgy of Ιric Jean, this riveting homage to the famed artist evokes the grand cycles of existence in five seasons, as described in Cohen’s deeply reflective music and poems.
The choreographic writing has been entrusted to three international choreographers with complementary hallmarks and personalities: Andonis Foniadakis, Annabelle Lopez Ochoa and Ihsan Rustem, in order to create a powerful and profound universe reflective of the famous poet’s work.
Surrounded by a team of celebrated designers, Dance Me combines scenic, visual, musical, dramaturgical and choreographic writing to pay tribute to Montreal’s greatest ambassador. Dance, music, lighting, scenography and videography all come together in this unforgettable show, for which the company has been granted exclusive dance rights for five years.
