A crow, carried by the breeze, flies over the mountains, the valley and finally the river. Follow it as it guides you to the little house with the green shutters at the end of the road in Petite-Rivière-Saint-François. There you’ll find Gabrielle, with her bright eyes, observing all the life in this part of the country: the little hay dancing in the wind, the flowers abounding on a pile of manure, the white and black birds along the flats calling out at low tide, the fireflies whispering at nightfall.

Based on the book of the same name by Gabrielle Roy, written in 1972, Cet été qui chantait is a show full of gentle imagery. Marie-Ève Fontaine recreates the deeply poetic world of the Franco-Manitoban author in a puppet theatre setting, inviting you on a sensory journey that will appeal to young and old alike.
