Bandshell

Les Ballets Jazz De Montréal

Friday, July 6 , 8 pm – 10 pm, 2018

Les Ballets Jazz de Montréal will perform Dance Me, inspired by the rich and profound work of the Montreal poet, artist and singer-songwriter Leonard Cohen, at the Bandshell as part of BRIC Celebrate Brooklyn! Festival, presented in partnership with Prospect Park Alliance.

Originally commissioned before Leonard Cohen’s death and with his blessing, Ballet Jazz de Montréal’s sprawling homage to his songs “is a grandly executed hodgepodge of performance art that pushes the entertainment value of contemporary dance closer to the level of a rock concert or big-budget musical.” (Ottawa Citizen) It debuted in Canada to great acclaim last year and the full piece will have its American premiere at the Bandshell.

Gates open an hour before the performance unless otherwise noted, and all performances are rain or shine. For the latest information, including weather updates, set times, seating configurations, and FAQs, please visit the BRIC website.
