Due to the COVID-19 coronavirus pandemic, the Danse Lhasa Danse, an ode to life show — scheduled on February 1, 2022 (initially planned for November 19, 2020, then postponed until May 17, 2021)— has been cancelled. Ticket holders will be reimbursed directly.

To celebrate the 10th anniversary of Lhasa de Sela’s death and the 30th anniversary of PPS Danse, artistic director Pierre-Paul Savoie revisits this production warmly welcomed in 2011,  when it was created.

In this show, dance, words and music melt into one voice to echo the work of the lady who urges us to celebrate life in all serenity. Five musicians, three singers and seven dancers magnify Lhasa's words and music and transcend her soul.
