Au rythme des mots

Introduce your students to the rhythmic and engaged art of hip hop!

The “Au rythme des mots” project introduces young people to the rhythmic and coded writing of hip hop and spoken word performance. Hip hop is an engaged form of art that gives young people a chance to work with wordplay, use rhythm, and express themselves freely.

School levels: High school 1 to 5 and Accueil intermediate and advanced

Educational Approach to the Project

Workshops and a performance give students an opportunity to familiarize themselves with the rhythmic and coded writing of hip hop. Workshops immerse students in the creative process and provide them with the knowledge and tools related to the discipline. At the project’s conclusion, students will understand the work that an artist must accomplish before taking a performance to the stage.

  • A pedagogical kit
  • Two workshops with an artist-mediator present at the school
  • A show by the main artists at Place des Arts

Performance of Sam Faye and D-Track – Stéréo

Sam Faye and D-Track deliver raps laced with humour, addressing subjects drawn from everyday life. They perform a colourful show highlighting the boom bap, trap, and funk styles, standing out through the quality of their writing and their on-stage rapport. Sam Faye is known for his relaxed style and ease on the mic, while D-Track is recognized for his versatile writing, humour, and energetic verve. This symbiosis of two distinct personalities makes for a unique performance.
