Under the artistic direction of Priscilla Guy, Salon58 focuses on artistic experimentation, multidisciplinarity and proximity to the public, promoting encounters on a human scale. The programming is built with particular attention to new voices, as well as a concern for intergenerational, interdisciplinary, cultural and regional representation. Salon58 offers funded artistic residencies, public intimate performances and affordable rental options.

Our spaces

Located 5 minutes from route 132 in the municipality of Marsoui, Salon58 is an airy multi-purpose space, bright and warm, in the hollow of the valley, bordered by the Marsoui river. The tranquility of the place, the proximity to nature and the various functions of the place make it a great residence space.

The house includes:

– 3 bedrooms with 5 beds
– 1 boudoir
– 1 workshop in the basement
– 1 large living room with wood stove, sofa, couch and piano (large enough for solo dance work)
– 1 fully equipped kitchen
– 1 dining room
– access to a projector and a screen
– High speed internet with unlimited download
– large quiet land between the mountains near the river

It is possible to get studio hours at the village Recreation Center (5min by car) for a larger dance space.

Note that there is no cellular network or landline at Salon58, but the quality wi-fi connection facilitates communications.

Priscilla Guy – artistic director and co-founder of Salon58

Priscilla Guy is a performer, choreographer, filmmaker, curator and researcher in the arts based in Marsoui, Gaspésie. She founded Mandoline Hybride in 2007, a banner under which she presents her scenic creations, in situ performances and choreographic short films on a local and international scale. Also at the origin of several projects overseen by Mandoline Hybride (Regards Hybrides, Salon58, FURIES – contemporary dance festival) and involved in international collective projects (8DAYS, Expanded Hybrids), she is interested in the strength of the group to propel political, aesthetic and social ideas. She currently sits on the Board of Directors of Studio 303 and holds a Doctorate in Arts from the University of Lille (France).


Founded in November 2018 by Benoit Paradis and Priscilla Guy, Salon58 welcomed more than 25 artists in residence from 2018 to 2020. At the end of these two busy and bright years, Benoit Paradis left the artistic co-direction of the project to focus on other challenges. From 2021, Priscilla Guy takes over the artistic direction of Salon58 by relying on numerous partnerships with organizations with diverse backgrounds. To discover Salon58 at its very beginnings, watch the Téléjournal ICI Radio-Canada report in November 2018.

The funded residencies aim to accompany the artists in a turnkey formula including a professional creation fee, accommodation, meals and transportation support. These residencies total 10 days (including 2 days of transportation and 1 day of preparation for the meeting with the public) and are shared by two or three artists live in the house and occupy the work spaces. At the end of these residencies, the artists share their work with the local population.

The programming is set up thanks to the curatorial work of Salon58’s artistic direction. While spontaneous applications are accepted at any time, we do not issue a call for submissions to select artists. Since 2020, a series of partnerships with various arts organizations has allowed us to issue targeted calls for applications for certain artistic practices or groups of artists – see the section Applications.


As part of the partnerships that Salon58 is developing with various arts organizations, various calls allow artists to submit their applications. Eligibility and selection criteria are established by the partners.

Getting to Salon58

Salon58 is located at 58 Route de la Rivière (also called Route de la Colonie) in Marsoui, about 8-10 minutes from the village by car.

From Sainte-Anne-des-Monts, take the first street on your right when you arrive at the village, at the corner of La Couquerie restaurant. Then continue to the sawmill. At the end of the sawmill, keep left at the fork. The house is the last of the street, on the right.

Note that there is no cellular network at the Salon58, nor at the last minutes of the road (from the sawmill).


The residencies supported at Salon58 are also made possible thanks to the financial support of the Conseil des arts et des lettres du Québec, the Ministère des Affaires municipales et de l’Habitation and the MRC de la Haute-Gaspésie as part of the Programme de partenariat territorial de la Gaspésie.
