This multi-disciplinary evening honours the life and work of New York-born, Montreal-based folk singer and musician, Lhasa de Sela, who lost her voice, and ultimately, her life to cancer. Artistic visionary Pierre-Paul Savoie’s Danse Lhasa Danse brings together seven dancers, four singers and five instrumentalists on stage to seamlessly meld concert and dance performance into a powerful tribute to the cherished artist who produced three lauded albums before her untimely death in 2010.

A Canadian icon himself, Pierre-Paul Savoie’s 30-year career has netted him numerous awards and recognitions for his choreographic work. A trailblazer of Quebec’s artistic scene, Savoie assembles an esteemed group of choreographers, visual artists, dancers and musicians, including the members of Lhasa’s original band, to create this beautiful, poetic evening.

>> Lhasa fans and first timers alike will be swept away by the bittersweet emotional tribute. << Toronto Life

>> No need for words… Here there is only the power of movement, emotion of song and the intangible qualities of music to pay tribute to a strong and eternal body of work. << Espace Musique
