Danser Joe dans la ville at NDG Cultural Centre

Notre-Dame-de-Grâce Cultural Centre May 27 and 28, 2017

A WORKSHOP FOR AMATEUR DANCERS AND NON-DANCERS

Would you like to take part in a unique dance performance?
Would you like to discover a major work in the repertoire of one of Quebec’s most famous contemporary dance choreographers?
Come and explore Joe, the flagship work of Jean-Pierre Perreault.In the company of Catherine Tardif and Sara Hanley, two fabulous dance artists who have performed Joe on stage, participants will don the iconic Joe costume—boots, a felt hat and an oversize raincoat—and will learn a few excerpts from the work. Developed by Ginelle Chagnon, Danser Joe dans la ville helps to keep the memory of the choreography alive in the body of each dancer, celebrating our shared heritage.At the end of the workshop, participants will perform the excerpts they have learned before an audience on May 28, at 4:30 p.m.. The performance will be followed by a free screening of the film Joe, directed by Bernard Picard (1994), compliments of Radio-Canada.
