La cadence du conteur

A Créations In Vivo production
(2013- ) • General audiences • 12 and up

Winner of the gold medal in the Storytelling category at the Jeux de la Francophonie 2013, Stéphane Guertin delivers, in this new show, a performance that combines storytelling and music, spoken-word poetry and traditional tale. Alone on stage, he adapts true stories by creating his own rhythms and stances with everyday objects, as well as with his bicycle equipped with amazing sound elements. Wolf stories, urban legends, crazy tales and human poetry.

La cadence du conteur (The Storyteller’s Cadence) has toured in Ontario, Quebec, France, Estonia, Latvia, Lithuania, Ivory Coast, Belgium and Benin.
