in Théatre du Reve's Salon

Celebrating the culture of Acadia -

Canada to Louisiana!

Theatre du Reve Salon
No matter what happens in our political lives, we will always need music, poetry, stories, and theatre to help us make sense of our world. If you’ve never been to a TdR Virtual Salon, you’re in for a treat! We send out a signature cocktail/mocktail recipe for each Salon, plus a Spotify playlist to put you in the mood. It’s more than a play reading – it’s a party!
Trio Vishten

* Trio Vishten's Emmanuelle LeBlanc will talk about the French Canadian music from Prince Edward Island that she and her sister Pastelle grew up hearing and playing.

Le Mulatre (filming
This Salon will also feature works by Creole poets of color who wrote in French in
pre-Civil War Louisiana: Armand Lanusse, Pierre Dalcour, and Victor Séjour, three brilliant writers who captured the beauty and pathos of their era in romantic French verse and short stories. Actor/videographer Maxton Jones has turned those writings into video. Above, he works his magic on a scene from Sejour’s Le Mulâtre (The Mulatto).

Jacqueline Howard wrote a wonderful version of Otis Redding's classic song for the Global Village Project. We sang it at the Harriet Tubman Museum in Macon, Otis' hometown, and his daughter Karla Redding-Andrews loved it!
