Open: 10/25/19- Close: 10/30/19 ALI HUGHES: LEONARD COHEN KOANS
Buoyant and vigorous in its celebration of the music and spirit of the iconic legend, LEONARD COHEN KOANS is a must see show for Cohen lovers and newcomers alike.

Renowned for her dynamic, sensuous voice, Ali Hughes delivers powerhouse interpretations of Leonard Cohen's most loved poetry, prose and song. As well as lesser known gems like The Butcher, you'll enjoy such Cohen favourites as Chelsea Hotel #2 and Suzanne in all new arrangements exploring the dynamism and intimacy in Cohen's incredible musicality.

Musically directed by Green Room Award winning composer Daryl Wallis, LEONARD COHEN KOANS moves from ethereal to full throttle in a heartbeat.

'ali && the thieves" are a storytelling music collaborative who perform internationally.

Open: 10/23/19- Close: 10/25/19 Lincoln Center's 2019 White Light Festival presents EN MASSE
Australia’s Circa ensemble embodies electrifying explosions of physicality and power in this work that blurs the boundaries of dance, theater, music, and circus arts. Under the visionary direction of Yaron Lifschitz, the troupe melds circus acrobatics with contemporary dance in the tender and savage En Masse, featuring ten acrobats and three musicians performing to music by Swedish composer Klara Lewis interspersed with selections from Schubert’s haunting Winterreise and Schwanengesang. A two-piano arrangement of Stravinsky’s Rite of Spring yields the anarchic energy of acrobats caught in a life-and-death struggle. Circa appeared in the U.S. premiere of How Like an Angel in the 2014 White Light Festival.   There will be a post-performance discussion with Libby McDonnell and Elizabeth Streb on Thursday, October 24.
