Post-performance talk with the artists

BJM – Les Ballets Jazz de Montréal return to the stage of Théâtre Maisonneuve with six additional performances of Dance Me, inspired by the inimitable work of Leonard Cohen.

Under Louis Robitaille’s artistic direction, in collaboration with stage director Eric Jean and 14 dazzling dancers, three international choreographers—Andonis Foniadakis, Annabelle Lopez Ochoa and Ihsan Rustem—evoke in “five seasons” the grand cycles of existence, as captured in the music and poems of Leonard Cohen. His words find new expression through dance.
