A New Initiative for Children...
interactive stories for children
Fabula-Fabulis, L'UniThéâtre's newest initiative, is a series of interactive stories for young children (2 to 5 years old) and their families. This initiative serves as an introduction to storytelling, to the French language, and to theatre. When we encourage children to gain an interest in developing their creative side, their appreciation for the arts is enrichened!
***these are FRENCH language events!***
The Fabula-Fabulis storytelling sessions take place in the Studio Yolande Proulx (theatre of La Cité francophone) at 11AM.

Michelle has always had her head in the clouds (which sometimes causes her problems at school). But when her Mom does not come to pick her up from school, Michelle will have to use her imagination (with the help of the audience) to find her way home. In this story filled with songs, children aged 2 to 5 years old will discover the magic of the imagination and will learn that it is possible to resolve problems by using it!

Mémix wants to tell you a story about travelling, meeting people, and self-discovery, filled with rituals and learned languages. Be ready for a journey that will expose you to these rituals and have you creating and discovering!
NOTE TO PARENTS : We play with language! This is a story told in many languages. While French is predominant, you and your child(ren) will hear other languages, as well as 'hybrid languages'.

The leopard king claimed to have killed a leopard by hand and became a tyranous ruler of his subjects. He did not tolerate crticism or opposition. When he became sick, he sent for all of the sorcerers and shamans of the kingdom, but no one could cure him. Even though he thought he was immortal, the leopard king dies, leading to the fall of the great baobab tree.
