Invested, focused, united: on November 29, nine members of the group Les Impatients – Chantale Daigneault, Christiane Deschênes, Nia Gueye, Sylvie Laflamme, Marie-Diane Lee, Diane Major, Victoria Saraguro, Sonia Verreault, and Sandra Zéline – presented Danser Joe, the workshop created in 2013 by Ginelle Chagnon and this time hosted by Sara Hanley and Catherine Tardif.
Thank you to the Impatients for their generosity and luminous presence, to UQAM’s Department of Dance for the loan of the Laboratoire, to the group Les Impatients – particularly to France Sevillano and Onira Lussier – for support in organizing the workshop, and to the Caisse de la Culture Desjardins for its invaluable support. The performance is now online!
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.
