Book Club -  Manman la mer


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!

To satisfy her mother, Marjolaine, then a child, suppresses her gift of clairvoyance...but twenty-six years later, she is struck by a mysterious illness that modern medicine cannot seem to cure. Deprived of options, Marjolaine travels to Haiti to rely on her grandmother's care... Told with sensitivity by Djennie Laguerre, Manman la mer puts women and West Indian spirituality in the spotlight, and explores with humour and authenticity the themes of mother-daughter relationships.



$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/
