G’zaagiin maleńki: je te promets une forêt

Théâtre du Nouvel-Ontario is a francophone theatre production company. All of our productions are presented in French, however, some shows feature English Surtitles™ so that more people can experience French theatre! We apologize, but not all content on this site is available in English.


Guided by the seasons and the sacred circle of the Indigenous Medicine Wheel, three artists come together on stage. An Abitibi cellist, a French and Anishinaabe actress and musician, and a director emigrated from Poland create an immersive space weaving sounds, echoes, textures, movement and poetry for all the senses. Drum, cello, voice, breath and gestures resonate together, forming an imaginary and mythical forest where young children will be able to make their way through the soundscapes.

The Voyageurs Immobiles team promises you a forest, but not just any forest, one in which you participate, one that is born from the meeting of a drum, a cello and melting ice, one from which you come out a little happier and more alive!

Preparation workshop for the show

Come and experience a journey through Aboriginal history!

Narrator, Connor Lafortune, will guide participants through songs, stories and traditional clothing as he presents key elements of Aboriginal regalia. He will also share his understanding of ribbon shirts, ribbon skirts and beading!

Connor will combine traditional knowledge with modern media to facilitate a learning journey. To accompany and play with him, bells, jingles and rattles will be available!

After the workshop, participants will have more knowledge about Aboriginal culture and traditions to better appreciate the piece.
