Mens-moi "I can't wait to present my brand-new show, in which I'll finally be performing some new, original songs! Songs about my life, my journey, a sort of diary that I hope will make you feel good, allow you to recognize yourself in my stories and weave an even stronger bond together. This time, I wanted to open up a little more to you, my dear public, who have followed me for so long with commitment and generosity, in my different musical styles and... in my changing hair looks! Today, I'm giving you 100% Brigitte Boisjoli from start to finish, with some of my favorite songs from the past few years, and of course a few nods to the highlights of my latest albums. I can't wait to tell you all about my life in song, and to meet you again! See you soon!" - Brigitte Boisjoli

The Family Record Tour :EMILIE CLEPPER, accompagnée de son père, Russell Clepper

This event took place on

30/05/2024

Emilie Clepper launched an album in September 2023 composed entirely by her father, Russell Clepper, who passed on his passion for music. As a child, Emilie had the privilege of falling asleep to his songs and by the age of 11, she began playing guitar and singing. She has been dreaming of paying tribute to her greatest musical influence ever since. In this show, the Texas rhythms will enchant the two-step and country dance enthusiasts. An evening of Americana music that will make Quebecers rediscover the genre through its authenticity and roots. Opening act with the singer-songwriter Nick Patterson. Nick Patterson is a well-kept secret, to say the least. Although he has been discreet over the past year, the singer-songwriter has performed more than a hundred times on European tours as well as across the four corners of Quebec, in addition to sharing the stage with several artists such as Bobby Bazini and Vincent Vallières. Through his work, he opens the door wide and invites his audience to enter an enveloping universe that is both romantic and lucid, where he takes a critical look at humans, a complex and swirling entity.

Le vent respire pour toi

This event took place on

26/05/2024

Le vent respire pour toi is not a text about Colette's life. It's a work of fiction. It's a declaration of love, a game by Yergo. What would happen, he wondered, if Colette lived in Montreal in 2023? Colette is Western literature's first queer superstar. Her series of novels featuring Claudine invented a new genre according to Cocteau, culminating in La retraite sentimentale. Colette's ability to reinvent herself is constant. After breaking up with her first husband, Willy, she took up gymnastics, mime lessons and stage shows. She causes a scandal at the Moulin Rouge, one breast bared, when she kisses her lover Missy on stage. The police intervene. These years are recounted in the masterpieces L'Envers du Music-hall and La Vagabonde. While she shares her friend Proust's fascination with Sodom and Gomorrah, her eroticism goes beyond human passions. Rather, it's a constant presence in the world that is honed in all her books, from Le Pur et l'impur, Sido and Les Vrilles de la vigne to L'Étoile Vesper. Her writing is constantly permeated by an art de vivre that resonates "more than ever with our times". Colette will be here in Brome Lake, 150 years after her birth. For one evening, embodied by Macha Limonchik. Eternally free and scandalous. With all her modern heritage. Original idea, text and choice of music: Yergo Reading: Macha Limonchik Lighting: Martin Sirois Produced by FIL 2023

Les FaRabagliateries

This event took place on

26/05/2024

Created especially for the Festival litteraire de Lac-Brome, this event promises to be a unique moment between Michel Rabagliati and Alain Farah. A rare opportunity for literary enthusiasts to see these two renowned authors together on the same stage. Alain Farah is a Canadian author and academic. Born of Lebanese-Egyptian parents, he published a book of poetry, "Quelque chose se détache du port", with Le Quartanier in 2004, for which he was a finalist for the Prix Émile-Nelligan. His poem No. 4 was the subject of a short film entitled "Un cri au bonheur", directed by Paule Baillargeon in 2007. In 2005, he moved temporarily to France, where he pursued doctoral studies at the École Normale Supérieure. On his return to Quebec in 2008, he published "Matamore n° 29", a first novel acclaimed by the press. In 2009, he was appointed assistant professor at McGill University. He succeeds Yvon Rivard and teaches creative writing as well as contemporary French literature, his area of specialization. In 2013, his doctoral thesis on Nathalie Quintane and Olivier Cadiot was published in France by Classiques Garnier, under the title "Le gala des incomparables". Her novel "Pourquoi Bologne" (2013) was a finalist for the Grand Prix du livre de Montréal and the Governor General's Award for French-language novels and short stories. His short lyric play "Les fortifications de Vauban" was created and directed by Marie Brassard in 2014. In 2016, he wrote the text for a comic strip entitled "La ligne la plus sombre", illustrated by Mélanie Baillairgé. Since 2011, he has been a regular contributor to the radio program "Plus on est de fous, plus on lit", broadcast on ICI Radio-Canada Première, as well as to the magazines "Liberté" and "Nouveau Projet". Michel Rabagliati is a Quebecois comic strip artist. After a brief interest in typography, he studied graphic design and began freelancing in this field in 1981. In 1988, he began illustrating advertising in earnest. He was one of the first in Montreal to produce illustrations exclusively by computer. Since then, this technique has been widely used. He gradually abandoned his "graphic design" clients to devote himself exclusively to advertising, editorial and publishing illustration. He works for various Montreal, Toronto and American magazines. Having found his niche in autobiographical comics, Michel Rabagliati uses the adventures of Paul, his alter ego, to recount his childhood memories of the Montreal neighborhood he lived in, or at his great-aunt's cottage in the Laurentians. The album "Paul à la campagne", published at the end of 1999 by La Pastèque, was greeted with a chorus of praise. Critics were unanimous in hailing Michel Rabagliati's great talent as a storyteller and illustrator. The album was awarded the Prix de la Librairie Pantoute de l'espoir québécois at the FBDF 2000, underlining the quality of this first work. Since then, he has won several awards, including the Doug Wright Award for best Canadian comic strip in 2006, and a special mention from the Prix des libraires du Québec in 2006 for his body of work. In 2008, he illustrated the cover of Mes Aïeux's CD La ligne orange, for which the group won the Félix award for record cover of the year at the 2009 ADISQ industry gala. His sixth album, "Paul à Québec" won the Prix du Public at the 2010 Angoulême International Comics Festival. This album was adapted for film in 2015 by François Bouvier. Michel Rabagliati co-wrote the screenplay with the director. His ninth album, "Paul à la maison", won Michel Rabagliati the Prix de la série at Angoulême in 2021.
