The Zébrures d’automne des Francophonies – Des écritures à la scène d’automne festival is celebrating its 40th anniversary with a focus on the Francophonies of the North. From 20 to 30 September, take to the halls and streets of Limoges to discover a dozen new works, many by artists from the Canadian Francophonie. Theatre, dance and music are sure to delight audiences.
Don’t miss: Convictions by Lara Arabian, produced by Théâtre Français de Toronto; Oh ! Canada – Chapitre 1 – L’Est canadien, by Danielle Le Saux-Farmer and Nicolas Gendron, produced by Ottawa Théâtre la Catapulte; On marronne ? (Si ça te dis, viens), by Gustave Akakpo, a co-production of Théâtre Cercle Molière (Canada), Théâtre de L’Entonnoir (Guyane Française) and L’Alliance Française de Ziguinchor (Senegal), as well as Indigenous singer Mimi O’Bonsawin.
Canadians will also take part in a round table discussion on the French language as an act of fraternity. Hear the thoughts of Mimi O’Bonsawin, an Indigenous musician from Ontario, and the team behind Oh ! Canada – Chapitre 1 – L’Est canadien, a documentary project that aims to explore the state of the French fact in Canada.
The festival is a place where the world can be seen from many different windows and points of view, a place where singular artistic proposals can be made, rich and varied in content and form, a place where established and emerging artists can be discovered and supported, a place of experimentation and generosity, an agora of curiosity, thought and reflection on our world.
