Margie Gillis is thrilled to be part of this 19th edition of Festival Quartiers Danse!

Festival Quartiers Danses is a specialized dance festival based in Montreal. The festival has made it its mission to democratize contemporary dance in all its forms and hybridities by making it more accessible to all audiences in traditional and unusual venues.

On September 14th and 16th, Margie will be presenting “Histoires d’isolement” at the Festival Quartiers Danses. “Histoires d’isolement” was created during the past few months, as we all evolved in our homes, separated from each other. A touching and deeply emotional work.

Our deepest thanks to dancers and creative collaborators Geneviève Boulet, Marc Daigle, Ruth Naomi Levin, Lucy M. May, Susan Paulson and Alisia Pobega, and Tessa Rae Kuz.
