«Histoires? Raconte!» is an upcoming story-telling workshop facilitated by Sylvain Gagnier, as part of a celebration of Francophonie during the month of March (le Mois de la Francophonie).

About the Facilitator

Gagnier is a French performance artist whose work draws inspiration from the traditional tales and folklore of the orient. In France, he is associated with the Théâtre du Fil, the Compagnie Atelier de l’Orage, the Compagnie Ucorne, and the Théâtre Chaoué. He received the Public Prize in the Nouvelles Ondes Festival, Pantin in 2017 for his show « Translation » adapted from the eponymous story by Nicolas Bouvier.

«Histoires? Raconte!» will showcase tales that unfold in the deserts of Africa. These stories will be interspersed with traditional French songs. Gagnier will engage in a dialogue with participants by inviting them to take part in the story-telling process, with words and gestures.

The goal of this workshop is to have fun! You will be surprised to learn that you are a storyteller, just like me! Yes, you have all the qualities within you! But perhaps, all this while, you were just ignoring them?” – Sylvain Gagnier
