Gens de la Fontaine

April 28, 2023 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm


Join Francophonie Atlanta, the Ecole du Samedi Atlanta, and the Alliance Française d’Atlanta for a play IN FRENCH about famous French fabulist Jean de La Fontaine, created by the French collective Aux Arts Etc.

About the play: June 1642… somewhere in a forest. Jean de la Fontaine is about to make a meeting that will change the course of his life… This meeting will be for the young man, the revelation of a gift, that of speaking and being heard by animals! The young man is about to pass between a reed and oak whose nasty gust of wind has caused the roots of the earth to come out… his foot gets caught in the roots, he loses his balance, falls, his head hits the ground… he faints and will only be awakened by the voices of a crow and a fox arguing over… cheese! The rest?… It will be up to you to discover it and judge on the spot!
There will be two FREE performances of “Gens de La Fontaine”:
1) Friday, April 28th at 6PM, at Alliance Française d’Atlanta
2) Saturday, April 29th at 10:30AM, at Atlanta International School
