Flood at the UQAM Dance Department

May 8, 2024

On Saturday, April 13, the Dance Department sustained massive water damage. A disaster. Our offices were located in the same building, so we won’t be able to access them for a while. We were left with damaged publications and furniture, and, most significantly, prints by Jean-Pierre Perreault as well as large-scale photographs were sadly affected by the water. Fortunately, they can most likely be restored. We hope you will express your solidarity with the Dance Department – both staff and students – at this difficult time.

Watch it here: A short video recorded the Monday after the flood: huge fans running to dry the office as well as the prints and photos laid flat in the Laboratory.
