The workshop Danser Joe was presented in Toronto, in co-production with MOonhoRsE dance theatre, as part of the Older & Reckless show marking the company’s 20th anniversary. It was an unforgettable experience for the participants and instructors alike. From November 7 to 12, Catherine Tardif and Bonnie Kim led the workshop created by Ginelle Chagnon. Over the course of a week, nearly 30 amateur dancers immersed themselves in Perreault’s flagship work and performed three excerpts on stage. Once again, Joe was a source of joy, discovery and sharing!
A big thank you to Claudia Moore, Artistic Director of MOonhoRsE dance theatre, and to her team for initiating this fabulous event!
Catherine Tardif also took the opportunity to present Jean-Pierre Perreault’s oeuvre to dance students at York University and at the School of Toronto Dance Theatre, and to talk about the transmission of his legacy through the Danser Joe workshops.
