Ballets Jazz Montréal
Dance me Music by Leonard Cohen



Due to traffic regulations that will be in effect for the needs of the “Half Marathon” on Saturday, November 11, the performance of Ballet Jazz Montréal at the A.A.T. on that day will begin at 20:30

The Canadian contemporary dance group Ballets Jazz de Montréal presents Dance Me, a performance inspired by and dedicated to Canadian songwriter, poet and author Leonard Cohen. Focusing on the great cycles of existence, as described in Cohen’s music and poems, the Canadian dance group puts together an immersive spectacle combining elements of choreography, visual arts, music and theatre, in order to redefine the vision of human existence in its fragile, mystical and carnal dimension. The choreography has been jointly created by three internationally acclaimed personalities –Andonis Foniadakis, Annabelle Lopez Ochoa and Isan Rustem– while Eric Jean’s bold dramaturgy and the group’s dancers take the performance to the next level with their strong presence. Cohen himself had given his consent for this unique tribute, which is presented with enormous success worldwide. The purpose of tonight’s special event is to help raise funds for Lifeline Hellas, so that it can continue its donations of modern incubators to the Attikon University General Hospital.
