La Compagnie du Beau Sauvage offers shows ( more or less educational ) for young and family audiences that are well suited for performances in schools, libraries, book fairs, small theaters, festivals, parties... In this web-site we present :
* a presentation of folk tales from Québec : Histoires de Quéteux et autres contes du Québec ( in French only )
* a lecture/demonstration/ image/puppet show that reveals the techniques used in comic books : Les Secrets de la BD ( for now, in French only )
-Link :Trio Toss the Feathers!- Lancez les plumes! Irish music on early instruments http://www.myspace.com/lancezlesplumes
La Cie du Beau Sauvage makes a point of offering presentations that are fun as well as educational, primarily through music, images and puppets.
We believe that learning and memorisation are reinforced when there is emotional involvement. We think that live theater is a wonderful vehicule for transmitting practical and/or philosophical ideas.
for nature, acceptance and embracing of other cultures and other ways
of thinking are the main values that La Cie du Beau Sauvage communicate
while amusing their audiences.
We, La Cie du Beau Sauvage, are three people. We live in the South of France. Alain Ayme is from Québec, Valerie Loomer is from the US, and Polo Burguière is French. Polo, whose passion is southern old time fiddling, spends time every year in the US. Thus, we are bi-cultural. We even aspire to a bit of tri-culturality, for we regret the "great missed rendez-vous ": the meeting and peaceful sharing that should have transpired, throughout the American continent, between the Europeans and the Native Americans. We hope to share, via our performances, this cultural plurality with our young and family audiences.
