Book Club - Le club des éphémères
Once again this year, TfT and the Alliance Française de Toronto are offering a book club focused on theatre. This virtual meeting will be an opportunity to discuss and explore mythical scenes that have marked the world of theatre.
With Hadrien Volle, cultural mediator, we will try to understand the issues in the texts, discover their meanings and share our feelings about various recognized or emerging authors. Everyone is welcome to join the club, whether new to the art world or an experienced theater enthusiast, or simply seeking information and advice before seeing the play on stage. The only prerequisites are curiosity and the pleasure of sharing ideas on theatre… in French!
When a documentary filmmaker arrives at their retirement home determined to make a film about "mayflies" or "shadflies", the daily lives of the five retired women are turned upside down. We learn that their passion for these ephemeral insects, which emerge from the lake every spring in search of light, conceals a second obsession, that of the Dionne quintuplets.
$5 per meeting or $30 for all meetings. Those fees do not include the books which must be purchased independently from the book club.
This activity is organized by Théâtre Français de Toronto. For more information please visit their website: http://theatrefrancais.com/en/bookclub/
