Nicole C. Laliberté, Director of Freedom Dances, hosts an evening celebrating French Canadian Heritage. Freedom Dances performs two multi-media dance works: One created from stories by local people of French Canadian descent; The 2nd, “La Survivance – Chère Mémère”, is the biography of Roger Laliberté’s mother, Maria. The evening concludes with a performance by Franco-American musicians Josée Vachon and Daniel Boucher. Colette Fournier will call quadrilles for which the audience is invited on stage to dance.
Funding provided in part by a grant from the Rhode Island State Council on the Arts, through an appropriation by the Rhode Island General Assembly, a grant from the National Endowment for the Arts; The American French Genealogical Society; Navigant Credit Union; and the Woonsocket Rotary Club.
