Danser Joe dans la ville is a workshop for amateur dancers and non-dancers that allows its participants to live a unique performance experience while discovering an outstanding work of the contemporary choreographic repertoire.

In Joe, a work created in 1983, then repeated many times until 2004, Jean-Pierre Perreault evokes both collective anonymity and individual singularity; the choreographer develops parameters that are dear to him: the movement of the performer at the origin of part of the music and the gravity of the body, itself emblematic of the human condition.
