As part of Black History Month in Canada, the Canadian Cultural Centre, the Toronto French Theater & the Consulate General of France in Toronto present four artistic performances mixing poetry, tale & slam.
Whether at the local, provincial, national or international level, artists from Afro-descendant communities have created works that stand out for their finesse, strength and acuity.
It’s become difficult to speak of only one unitary literature, one unitary poesy or even one unitary “black” theatre. Today, there are as many approaches and forms as there are black creators who draw on their origins or their identity.
With this in mind, the Toronto French Theater and the Consulate General of France in Toronto have selected to present four artistic performances that transgress borders.
Discover or rediscover the words and poems of artists, including Haitian-Canadian Djennie Laguerre and Guyanese Canadian BerekYah Yergeau.
Join us on February 18 at 8 pm on our Facebook Page to access online videos by these artists who push the limits of our horizons and transgress borders.
- Suzy Ronel (Guadeloupe), “Man Nann” & “M’Boya”
- Simané Wenethem (New-Caledonia)
- Djennie Laguerre (Canada, Haiti)
- Berekyah Yergeau (Canada, French Guiana).
