After playing to sold-out crowds during Danse Danse’s 2017 season, Les Ballets Jazz de Montréal bring back their homage to the music and poetry of Leonard Cohen. The show features 14 dancers performing to 16 songs, including not only standards like Suzanne, So Long Marianne and, of course, Hallelujah, but several from Cohen’s final album, You Want It Darker. BJM boss Louis Robitaille directs what he has described as the most ambitious show in the company’s 45-year-plus history, while the choreography is shared between a triumvirate of major European dance figures — Annabelle Lopez Ochoa, Andonis Foniadakis and Ihsan Rustem. It’s on from March 14 to 23 at Théâtre Maisonneuve. — Jim Burke
