French cultural centre Alliance Française knows we can’t travel to France amid the pandemic so they’re doing us a solid by offering free, virtual, French cultural experiences on their site. Oui Oui!

Check out what they have to offer this week:

Film

Grand Hôtel Barbès by Ramzi Ben Sliman

Paris, in the Goutte-d’Or neighborhood, spring 2018. Twenty-year-old Ulysse, impoverished and idle, encounters Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart on a street corner. The Austrian composer could get Ulysse out of his tight spot in exchange for a dance.  A story of human endurance and dreams coming true. English subtitles available.

Art

Djerbahood

Mehdi Ben Cheikh of the Parisian gallery ‘Galerie Itinerrance’ alongside French photographers organized Djerbahood. An art exhibition on the island of Djerba in French-speaking Southern Tunisia.  

150 street artists from 30 countries turn the old Tunisian village into an amazing outdoor Art Gallery. Feast your eyes on incredible pieces and learn some graffiti techniques while at it.

Music

Arte Concert

Afro- Parisians Flavia Coelho, Asa, and Souad Massi performed at the highly acclaimed Arte concert. Exclusive footage from the concert is now available for your viewing pleasure.

Music connoisseurs will appreciate this rich blend of Afro-French sounds from the talented trio from the comfort of your home.

Dance 

Allegria by Kader Attou

French-Algerian dancer and choreographer, Kader Attou, is one of the foremost representatives of French hip-hop dance.  He has been in the game since 1989. Watch his November 2019 performance at Théâtre de Chaillot here.
