In a number of ways, dance can express and transform interpersonal and social bonds. This article explores this idea, drawing on a dance project conducted in Montreal in 2017 in a multi-ethnic neighborhood facing issues of poverty. The project was based on the premise that intergenerational and intercommunity ties both echo and transform each other. This article will describe the framework in which the project took place and discuss the challenges it raised, particularly in terms of animation and artistic process. Finally, we will reflect on the way that the dynamics between centrality and marginality were revealed in the project.
