The Antwerp-Croatian choreographer Michael Lazic reworked the beautiful piece of Cohen in collaboration with his assistant Elles Grzybek and composer Peter Verhelst.

"With this production we certainly do not pay tribute to Leonard Cohen, but we reinterpret part of his oeuvre in a unique intimate soundscape with echoes of his memorable melodies and lyrics. We want to show the public a different view of his work.

Nowadays people forget his or her duality character in the pursuit of eternal happiness and security. Every starting relationship involves some dramatic end. We can stick to this volatility of our existence, never want to let go and sue it in vain until we lock ourselves into it. But we can also surrender to it, embrace it and accept the intangible, where we get the feeling of being lifted from all our pain and joys."
