Video

Unfortunately, I have no footage of my English-language performances. You can hear me in English in the following video, in which I explain how I became bilingual. Below that clip are some excerpts where I tell stories in French, which can still give you an idea of my style.

FOOL 2010

A promotional video from the 2010 Festival of Oral Literature in Toronto. For the impatient, my interview starts around 1:30.

Ganesh (in French)

This performance was part of the Paroissiens du village global show presented during the Festival interculturel du conte du Québec. In this excerpt, I tell the story of the Hindu god Ganesh: a traditional tale with a modern tone.

Le chien noir (in French)

This was filmed at the McCord Museum during a performance of the show Trois voix d’outre-tombe presented during the Festival interculturel du conte du Québec. I don’t often tell traditional tales, but for this project I felt it appropriate to adapt an old Scottish folk tale. (Much of the audience was seated above me, which is why I spend a lot of time looking up in this clip.)
