Fondation Jean-Pierre Perreault
March 17–23 (link available for 7 days)
An iconic contemporary dance piece
A pivotal work by the late Jean-Pierre Perreault, Joe presents an image of the human condition that is so accurate and so moving that it remains forever imprinted in the memories of those who have seen it.
To the sound of 32 pairs of work boots obsessively pounding the floor, 32 dancers, dressed in long coats and hats, move in a compact mass from which individuals occasionally attempt to free themselves to escape a foreordained destiny.
Filmed for Radio-Canada in 1995.
