Simon a toujours
aimé danser

Simon tries his utmost to stand out, and to liven up the boredom of his daily existence. He wants to sing, but his voice isn’t good enough: he wants to dance, but he got signed up for hockey instead. Nothing turns out as expected: his faith breaks, his voice breaks, his heart breaks… yet in spite of it all, amid all the turmoil of adolescence, he learns to love himself the way he is.

Chronicling Simon’s inward journey from awkward kid to Prince Charming with great tenderness and humour, Simon a toujours aimé danser is about the importance of expressing yourself and achieving your potential through your passions in life. The play draws on a wide range of cultural references, bridging the gap between Nobel Prize-winning authors and Disney movies, between classical and pop, between ballet and music videos.
