In Dis Merci, four neighbours are getting ready to throw a party for a refugee family arriving in Canada. Despite their best intentions to welcome the newcomers into their lives with genuine warmth, they quickly descend into prejudice, stereotypes, and dysfunction. Through dance, theatre, knitting, and even inflatable objects, this deliciously awkward and collectively devised piece cracks open complex issues around how we treat anyone who deviates from the norm.

Joe Jack & John incorporates elements of dance and visual arts into its politically engaged artistic practice, in order to throw into question the very notion of “normal”. Co-founder Catherine Bourgeois has created a searingly relevant show with an integrated cast of people living with and without disabilities.
