From their early days to their work with some of the leading names in contemporary dance, the BJM have been in constant transformation. Crystal Pite, Wen Wei Wang, Cayetano Soto and Aszure Barton have all created pieces for the company. Dance Me, a new work that will receive its world premiere during the Danse Danse season, is based on the repertoire of Leonard Cohen. In five seasons that reflect five stages in the late singer– songwriter’s life, Dance Me will paint a multifaceted portrait of the man who wrote Hallelujah.

This new work brings Leonard Cohen’s compositions to the stage in dance.
