Inspired by a momentous, though brief, meeting between the directors of Colombian dance troupe Compañía Cuerpo de Indias and Kazuo Ohno, late father of the Japanese dance-theater form Butoh, this transcultural tribute is set to some of Leonard Cohen’s most transformative songs. Inspired by Ohno’s passionate, subtle movement vocabulary as reimagined in a modern choreographic framework, creators Álvaro Restrepo, Marie France Delieuvin, and Ricardo Bustamante’s shifting tableaux for 11 dancers evoke a sense of mystery and wonder found in both Ohno and Cohen’s astounding bodies of work.
“A fantastic piece that guides audience members to let go of the logical, and enter the world of abstract and obscure. It is a wonderful representation of the unifying force of humanity through means of dance.”– Mooney on Theatre
