DESCRIPTION

THE FRANCO-ONTARIAN AUTHOR MARIE-THÉ MORIN REVISITS, CONDENSES AND HAS FUN WITH THE ADVENTURES OF A TRADITIONAL CANADIAN CHARACTER. One who needs no introduction and who’s been fueling the imagination of francophones all over the globe for several decades now — we’re talking about Ti-Jean of course! The young boy gifted with the ability to take on a multitude of different accents…

This workshop/performance explores the orality of French Ontario and seeks to highlight the various accents found North, East and South of the province.  Through a simple and playful staging, with puppets made out of recycled materials, on a stage made out of paper, rediscover French Ontario’s rich expressions.

This presentation is divided into three phases:

BEFORE THE PERFORMANCE:
Puppet building workshop via an ‘unboxing’ video. Our performers introduce the characters from the story and show the children how to make a puppet from recycled materials.

DURING THE PERFORMANCE:
A 25-minute performance streamed on a virtual platform during which children will be invited to use their own puppets ; followed by a discussion on what it means to be an actor: How and why should we tell stories?

AFTER THE PERFORMANCE:
The teacher (or parents at home) will be able to invite the children to tell or invent a Ti-Jean tale “in their own way”, by lending their voice to their own puppet.
