At the end of their residency at Salon58, the break collective Sweet technique participated in a filming at the Maison de la culture de Sainte-Anne-des-Monts last Sunday! The artists delivered a breathtaking performance, in addition to sharing their journey and the short history of break in interviews with director Jonathan Gaudreau. Discover it in our webcast from January 24th to 31st on Mandoline Hybride's website!
Last Saturday, more than 30 people from Gaspésie, Bas-Saint-Laurent, Montreal, Quebec City, Greece, India and Korea participated in our Zoom workshops with Sweet technique, Q-052, Sensei H and Monsieur Nokturn. Congratulations to all participants for taking up this challenge and starting the year strong!
Return of the Mi'kmaq Language and Culture rendez-vous
In 2021, Mandoline Hybride was launching a series of monthly meetings to better understand the Mi'kmaq culture and learn the language. Thanks to a partnership with Culture Gaspésie, these warm sessions will be back on January 30th 2022! The last Sunday of each month on Zoom at 4pm, we will share an informal and friendly moment with Gesgapegiag artist Darlene Gijuminag.
These sessions are free and open to anyone who wants to learn more about Mi'kmaq culture, discuss Indigenous and non-Indigenous realities, or simply learn a few words in Mi'gmaw, one of the many dialects of the Mi'kmaq Nation. Save the dates:
→ Sunday, January 30 at 4:00 pm → Sunday, February 27 at 4:00 pm → Sunday, March 27 at 4:00 pm → Sunday, April 24 at 4:00 pm → Sunday, May 29 at 4:00 pm
The tradition of the "Audience choice award" at Salon58 continues! After Marjolaine Beauchamp in 2019, Andrew Turner in 2020 and Natasha Kanapé Fontaine in early 2021, this distinction accompanied by a $500 grant is now awarded to Cap-au-Renard storyteller Stéphane Maddix Albert!
