The Literature to Life® stage presentation of

The Giver

By Lois Lowry

Performed by Elizabeth Parker

Adapted and Directed by Elise Thoron

In a dystopian world where all is the same, twelve-year-old Jonas is selected to receive the memories of a far different life. This Literature to Life Award winner features sixty minutes of solo-performance focusing on the relationship between the young Jonas and his mentor, The Giver. As Jonas trains to become the Receiver of Memories, the buried truth about the world that he was born into becomes hauntingly clear to both Jonas and the audience. Surrounded by a pre and post show interactive discussion, the audience will explore themes including individuality, ethics and social constructs.

Playing for Change

Back by popular demand! The YouTube phenomenon known as the Playing for Change Band will inspire your students as it brings together musicians from all walks of life, from around the globe, united in purpose on one stage. The idea for the Playing for Change project arose from a common belief that music has the power to break down boundaries and overcome distances between people. No matter whether people come from different geographic, political, economic, spiritual or ideological backgrounds, music has the universal power to transcend and unite the human race.

Alice au pays des merveilles

Theatre Tout à Trac (Montreal)

Faithful to the madness and the lively humour of the original piece, this revisitation of the famous Lewis Caroll’s classic tale has a unique twist: the setting is no longer a garden but a library full of pop-up books! Each book is then a discovery and a door to the next adventure. As much as it is a praise of reading, Alice in Wonderland is also a gateway to the imagination… Will you follow the white rabbit?

Fidèle à la folie et à l’humour débridé de l’œuvre originale, cette relecture du célèbre conte de Lewis Carroll regorge de trouvailles pour incarner la panoplie de personnages hauts en couleur. On se laisse surprendre par le décor ingénieux, dans lequel chaque livre est une découverte et sert de porte vers la prochaine aventure. Apologie de la lecture, Alice au pays des merveilles ouvre une fenêtre sur l’imaginaire… Suivrez-vous le lapin blanc?
