HOT ON THE HEELS of their North American summer tour, Australia's ali & the thieves RETURN TO NEW YORK CITY THIS NOVEMBER to present the acclaimed narrative concert, Leonard Cohen KOANS, for three nights Off-Broadway at the Triad Theater!!
LOVED by Cohen fans and new-comers alike, Leonard Cohen KOANS is a captivating and inspiring celebration of the spirit, music and poetry of one of the greatest songwriters of the modern age.
Passionate, sensuous vocalist ALI BABS more than embodies the energy that one expects from an evening celebrating Cohen, her startling range and remarkable ability to hold the stage meeting this exceptionally well-crafted curation of Cohen poetry, prose and song - including "Avalanche", "Chelsea Hotel #2", and the beloved "Suzanne" - to offer a stirring meditation on the legend and his legacy.

Intertwined with excerpts of poetry and prose, and delivered through the lens of his Zen Buddhist spirituality Leonard Cohen KOANS weaves a new pathway into your experience of this glorious Poet of the Holy Sinners.
