How do you embody an enigma? DANCE ME is an exclusive creation inspired by the rich and profound work of Montreal-based poet, artist and songwriter, Leonard Cohen. The most ambitious creation in the 45-year history of the acclaimed BJM, and the brainchild of its Artistic Director Louis Robitaille, the former Canadian ballet star, DANCE ME was approved by Leonard Cohen during his lifetime. Under the strong and bold dramaturgy of Eric Jean, three internationally renowned choreographers were entrusted with putting movement to 15 of Cohen’s legendary songs, from his first album in 1967, to You Want It Darker, released just before he died. This globe-trotting production inspired by the legendary Canadian artist’s singular work, is brought to life by 14 of BJM’s most exceptional performing artists.
