When Quebec choreographer Jean-Pierre Perreault made "Joe" for a contingent of Montreal college students in 1983, he didn't suspect he had the beginnings of a popular phenomenon. After all, it had all the wrong ingredients: postmodern dance--meaning everyday clothes, no flashy virtuosity, no catchy music--and the potentially esoteric theme of group mentality versus freedom of the individual.

Identically dressed in fedoras, overcoats, baggy pants and boots, 31 dancers march across the stage of the Luckman Theatre at Cal State L.A. and up a ramp at the back, their steps pounding out a rhythm that suggests soldiers on parade, but can change to simulate Busby Berkeley tap hordes or the mechanical brushing of windshield wipers with startling suddenness and precision. This is "Joe," a one-act, 1983 dance-spectacle on tour in America for the first time.

"We always joke that everything she wears matches," said Luc, the Kings' president of business operations and dutiful son who calls his parents at least three times a week.
