Jean-Pierre Perreault
By Kelly Apter from The Scotsman

IN THE SAME WAY that winning an Oscar for your first film or reaching number one with your debut single can set something of a precedent, scoring a smash hit with your first major dance work is a mixed blessing. For although Jean-Pierre Perreault had been choreographing for more than ten years when he created Joe in 1984, it was the inaugural dance to emerge from his newly formed company. Such was the show’s impact that the Fondation Jean-Pierre Perreault quickly became one of Canada’s most influential contemporary dance companies.

Joe
By Donald Hutera for The Times


THIS year the International Festival’s dance programme spotlights three North American companies (Ballet West, Nikolais Dance Theatre and Fondation Jean-Pierre Perreault) and two from Britain (Rambert and Akram Khan), with side trips to the Continent via the late-night series (all seats a bargain £5). Nor should we overlook the first foray into opera of Emio Greco and Pieter C. Scholten, whose staging of Gluck’s Orfeo for Opera North marks the Dutch-based dance partnership’s fourth consecutive Festival visit.

But first comes Perreault’s Joe, the bedrock of this Canadian choreographer’s legacy. Dating from 1984, Perreault’s cult masterwork is in the midst of a long global tour. London audiences can catch it during Dance Umbrella, October 15 and 16.

... it is the unique orchestration of bodies sending out signals, some obscure, some obvious, which sets it apart for a new generation.

Festival Reviews: The power and the pomp

By MARY BRENNAN
The Scotland Herald

Joe
Edinburgh Playhouse
In this epic, large-scale dance piece by the late Jean-Pierre Perreault, everyone's a Joe: just an ordinary bod, part of the pack. But as we're squeezing and shuffling through the foyer doors, it's obvious we're all Joes, too: caught in a bunch of bodies, our individuality...

Let us sway
A farewell tour for a modern masterpiece proves to be a moving experience, says David Dougill in The Times


The main festival’s first big-scale dance event at the Playhouse, Joe, by the Fondation Jean-Pierre Perreault from Quebec, is remarkable and riveting for almost all of its 70 minutes (I think an hour would be enough).

It employs a large company of 32 dancers, and what is most unusual is that you can’t tell which are men and which are women — you seldom get a glimpse of a face.

The dancers are dressed unisexly in suits and ties, raincoats and fedoras (the brims pulled down), the colours drab brown or slate. Huddled in a tight group, they could be a nest of mice.
