Les Ballets Jazz de MontréalDance Me / Music of Leonard Cohen
September 26 – 28, 2019 · Zellerbach Theatre
A riveting homage to famed poet/singer/songwriter, Leonard Cohen. With a soundtrack of Cohen's most beloved songs, choreographers Annabelle Lopez Ochoa, Andonis Foniadakis and Ihsan Rustem created a multidisciplinary work that evokes the cycles of human existence as described in Cohen's deeply insightful music and poems. Dance Me paints a multifaceted portrait of the man who gave us "Hallelujah" and "So Long, Marianne", his words finding profound, new meaning though dance.

Before and after evening performances of Les Ballets Jazz de Montréal, be sure to head to our Outdoor Plaza for REBO(U)ND, a visual art experience that epitomizes the feelings of abandon and liberty that dancing can evoke. In REBO(U)ND, dancers utilize a trampoline to showcase suspension, the ephemeral instant when a performer floats; the second between momentum and falling, between liberty and unbalance, just as the body seems to defy space and time.

Come sit outside and enjoy some drinks before the show. New this fall, we’re offering a Beer Garden on our Outdoor Plaza, open two hours before evening performances in September. Hope to see you there!
Stay after the performance for a post-show talk with NextMove Dance Artistic Director Randy Swartz.
The 19/20 dance series is presented by the Annenberg Center and NextMove Dance.
