A vibrant dance homage to poet and musician Leonard Cohen. In five seasons that reflect five stages in the late singer–songwriter’s life, Dance Me paints a multifaceted portrait of the man who wrote Hallelujah, Suzanne and So Long Marianne. Dance, music and videos bring Cohen’s compositions to the stage in dance. Sure to see out!
