NAC Dance invites you to relive Joe, the contemporary Canadian dance piece by the late Jean-Pierre Perreault that premiered in 1984. This piece aims to pay tribute to and allow the public to discover or rediscover a historical performance. To the sound of 32 pairs of work boots 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 preordained destiny. Produced by Filigrane Archives.

This Digidance webcast is an initiative of DanceHouse (Vancouver), Danse Danse (Montreal), Harbourfront Centre (Toronto) and the National Arts Centre (Ottawa) in collaboration with the Fondation Jean-Pierre Perreault. Thank you to Radio-Canada Archives. Click here for more details.
