Mick Kinney & I are singing and playing LIVE (online)
in Théatre du Reve’s Salon
Celebrating the culture of Acadia –
Canada to Louisiana!
|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! TdR sends 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’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.
|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. Below, he works his magic on a scene from Sejour’s Le Mulâtre (The Mulatto).|
