The latest workshop in the Danser Joe dans la ville series was held on December 1 and 8 at the Centre William-Hingston, which offers French-language classes to immigrants. Catherine Tardif and Daniel Villeneuve had the great pleasure of teaching excerpts from Joe to some twenty newcomers, most of whom were discovering contemporary dance for the first time. The participants and their friends who attended the show were keen to know more about Jean-Pierre Perreault and the meaning of the work. It was a wonderful encounter with people who have no doubt experienced first-hand the sense of exile that Joe evokes.
