Roger invites us in his hut to tell us a traditional tale and play the accordion. He will train us in music and teach us how to accompany the music with spoons. A small sleigh ride with his horses will take us back in time.
An entertaining and bilingual show, therefore accessible to all!
“Les fonds de terroir”
In a most festive atmosphere and through a unifying repertoire,
André Thériault, revives all the friendliness and humor of the beautiful songs.
of the Canadian oral tradition, francophone. A guitar-voice and harmonica show,
presented in a whimsical way, that is to say with a lot of humour and intervention.
An opportunity to get together in a good mood.
“Au creux de la Montagne”
Show of stories and songs of lumberjacks as well as Atikamekw legends. A time to allow traditional songs to harmonize with Aboriginal stories and an opportunity to tell our corner of the country.
A story that goes back well before Jacques Cartier.
A history of hunting and fishing, of war and discovery, of the fur trade and colonization, of log driving and logging, but also a history of exchange, respect and reconciliation. A show filled with humor and emotion.
As part of the celebration of La Francophonie, Club Bon Accueil offers interactive storytelling sessions to French schools.
These sessions will be animated online by the storyteller Ingrid Broussillon, founder of Griottes Polyglottes (practice your French while having fun and speaking it with confidence).
We will travel during a 30-minute session on the theme of sugaring-off time, and children have been invited to participate during the storytelling.
Get ready to enjoy this lovely sweet tale and lick your lips to the melodious songs.
Objective of the session :
- To tell a story in French to keep the children connected with the language.
- Involve children by working on imagination, creativity and overcoming their shyness.
- Giving children the opportunity to be part of a story with their proposal
Show will be online from March 18
