A recipe for Leonard Cohen

In 1994, Leonard Cohen left the show business and civilization to hide in the Zen monastery at Mount Baldy, California. He became a Zen monk, receiving the Japanese name Jikan. After spending 5 years in a monastery, he abandoned it for a woman.

Full of new, explorative musical arrangements performed live and the unobvious humor of the Canadian bard, a musical spectacle by Łukasz Witt-Michałowski about the place of seclusion of Leonard Cohen and the mysterious guests who come there to see him.
