This film will be presented during the event La Nuit de la danse on March 18, 2022 at Théâtre Outremont in the presence of the choreographer Margie Gillis and the director of the film, Louis-Martin Charest.

When Dreaming Molly is a dance show, filmed a few days before the start of the pandemic. This piece is the continuation of the solo Bloom, created and performed by Margie Gillis in 1989. Choreographed to James Joyces famous monologue in Ulysses, this innovative, raw, vulnerable piece illustrates the attempt to physically combine flow of consciousness and freedom of spirit. Created with the same curiosity and innovation as Joyce’s book, this adaptation pushes the boundaries of dance and playfully expands the boundaries of gender roles.
