“ Do you know the story about a child who was genial at 17 years and suddenly ceased being it? You may think I talk about Arthur Rimbaud ? Not at all… I will evocate an even stranger catastrophe, a genius teenager who was asphyxiated – by him and society – throughout all his adult life but that retrieved his flame at the age of 36 years, just before he died, before he died from ir… It’s about Georges Bizet.

Les chants de mon pays

Québec

Les chants de mon pays/ Québec Palais Montcalm

Born in Haiti, Marie-Josée Lord arrived in her new country, Quebec, at the age of 6. From the very beginning, she was quickly immersed in a new musical culture, inherited from her adoptive parents, who introduced her to the world of the great songwriters. At a very young age, the texts of these great Quebec poets will be for her a place of escape, carried by the imagination of words.

Gilles Vigneault, Félix Leclerc, Robert Charlebois, Claude Dubois, Diane Juster, Monique Leyrac, Luc Plamondon, Gaston Miron, to name but a few, have cradled my poetic and sound universe. Their poetry and their stories made me love words and, supported by music, these words became for me travels, escape and parallel universe. With this show: Les chants de mon pays, I want to pay tribute to its pillars and national treasures. Because thanks to them, Quebec has been able to make its existence known beyond its borders. Their words and their music are today a heritage for the future generations.
