Music, Juggling and French-Métis Culture
Fiddle and Furs
Show: Music, Juggling and French-Métis Culture
Join TiBert and Douzie on a sound and visual journey of French and Métis culture in Manitoba! Juggler and master storyteller, TiBert will explore the rich history of Manitoba while Douzie and his beautiful fiddle and turntable will give you a musical experience of traditional and contemporary sounds. This lively duo completes the experience with a musical jam followed by a question period. This interactive and energetic show will surely amuse your students and encourage them to stand to jig! The duration of the unlimited seat show can vary between 20 and 60 minutes depending on the schedule and the budget.
Workshops: Fiddle and Furs
Participants touch furs and practice Manitoba animal French vocabulary with TiBert. Also, participants have the opportunity to play traditional percussion instruments (spoons and bells) in addition to trying out the turntable when they play in a group guided by Douzie.
The workshops are offered in rotation for a maximum of 60 students at a time, half of them with TiBert and the other half with Douzie. The workshops can last from 20 to 60 minutes depending on the schedule, the budget and the number of students. We rotate groups halfway through. For example, for a duration of 40 minutes, after 20 minutes the pupils with TiBert move to Douzie and vice versa.
