Fête famille - Rythmes autour du monde

Esplanade de la Place des Arts September 27, 2020

Due to developments over the past few days and new recommendations from the public health department, we have been forced to cancel the Fête famille - Rythmes autour du monde and all other Hors les murs events scheduled for this week. We thank all the artists who led or would have led the various activities.

Participants who had reserved spots for upcoming activities will be contacted by email and will be able to have their deposit refunded.

Join professional artists and our funny hosts Phinéas and Dahlia for the Rythmes autour du monde family celebration, featuring a series of 3 workshops (Rhythms of Reunion Island, Rhythms of Mexico, and Afro-Columbian Rhythms and Movement)—each at 30 minutes in duration—followed with some time in a play area (bowling, chalk drawing, hoops, skipping ropes, and crafts).

The Rhythms of Reunion Island workshop introduces you to the island’s songs and musical traditions, while the Rhythms of Mexico workshop whisks you away with the sounds of the region. Finally, the workshop on Afro-Columbian Rhythms and Movement will introduce you to the country’s music, songs, and dance through cumbia!
