This new video from Mathi Loslier Pellerin features artists from the group Les Impatientes – Chantale Daigneault, Christiane Deschênes, Nia Gueye, Sylvie Laflamme, Marie-Diane Lee, Diane Major, Victoria Saraguro, Sonia Verreault, and Sandra Zéline – who, on November 29, danced excerpts from Joe. In it, Catherine Tardif conveys with spirit and sensitivity what Joe is. The dancers take turns reflecting on the experience, the character of Joe, moving their bodies through space, the memory of the dancing body, and their relationship with Jean-Pierre Perreault. Beautiful, moving, and powerful.


Les Impatients is a non-profit organization whose mission is to help people with mental health issues through artistic expression. Creative workshops are offered to promote exchanges with the community through the dissemination of the work produced in the workshops.
