Our Passion at Your Service

Thanks to collaborations with the Literacy Foundation, L’école et les arts, Communication-Jeunesse , we know that by helping kids catch the reading bug, we help reduce school dropout rates!

As a team of professional actors, we love sharing our passion for books, authors and their myriad views of the world. We bring words to life by allowing primary and secondary students experience a very magical moment with books. Passionate about phonetics and reading, we use acting techniques to interpret literary excerpts. We select award-winning works by published authors from Quebec and elsewhere with a view to highlight the intelligence of the language as well as the words’ beauty and capacity to convey emotion and ideas. The ultimate goal of our performances: rekindle our audience’s interest in literature.
