Poet Laureate Jason Heroux offers a 90-minute workshop on Renga
poetry in dialogue with the work of Leonard Cohen. Presented in
conjunction with Les Ballets Jazz de Montréal's 'Dance Me' at the Grand.
Renga is a genre of Japanese collaborative poetry: verse written
by multiple authors in conversation. In this 15-person workshop for
those aged 14 and older, Jason Heroux will lead a discussion of
Leonard Cohen's work, after which the participants will use Cohen's
verse to initiate a series of Renga poems.
This workshop is offered in conjunction with the February 25
Grand OnStage presentation of Les Ballets Jazz de Montréal's 'Dance
Me', which has been described as "an exclusive creation
inspired by the rich and profound work of Leonard Cohen". For
