Whether you call them « bonhommes gigueurs » (in Québec’s traditions), “limberjacks” (in the United States), “dancing men”, “dancing dolls” or “jigdolls” (in England), these puppets are a lot of fun to watch as they perform in the style of the best step-dancers! 


That performance was captured in Montreal, March 2008, just before Monique and her troop of dancers flew to France to offer a memorable performance and conference on their origins, at La Maison des Cultures du Monde in Paris, April 2008.
