Montreal’s Iconic Solo Dance Artist, Margie Gillis launches Legacy Project/ Projet Héritage
This production signifies a new chapter for the Foundation, and is not to be missed!
Margie Gillis invites the public to one of the most celebrated, vibrant and enriching shows in her repertoire. Legacy Project/ Projet Héritage is a collaborative undertaking in which Ms. Gillis will be joined by eight exceptionally gifted dancers whom she has selected to not only contribute to the preservation of an artistic heritage, but also to the passing on of her unique philosophy to “think and to live dance”. For the first time ever, the audience will have the opportunity to see some of Margie’s most celebrated creations presented by other members of the cast interpreted with their artistic vision, as well as world premiers of new solo and group work.
This program is dedicated to Leonard Cohen, who was a member of the Legacy Project/ Projet Héritage Honorary Board, a long time supporter of the Margie Gillis Dance Foundation, and friend of Ms. Gillis.
Residency at Place des Arts. Presented with MONTRÉAL EN LUMIÈRE.
