Vive La France French Theatre Incursion

Year 7, 8 and 9 Students enjoyed some French Culture from a Theatrical Company Cultural Infusion last week.

Vive La France took a humorous look at some of the events and people that have come to typify France’s great culture.

We met two soldiers; English and French, who attempted to find a way out of the 100 years war and Monsieur Guillotine, who attempted to persuade the world of the effectiveness of his new punishment device.

We journeyed through the French Revolution, meeting historical icons like Marie-Antoinette, Joan of Arc, Louis XVI and even delved into the heart of Napoleon’s short-man syndrome. Finally we ventured inside the Moulin Rouge and some students even had a go at the French Can Can.

Through a series of skits and sketches, the students were immersed in France’s history.

We hope that the students enjoyed this experience and that it inspires them in their French studies.
