Pre-Festival: Alexis Normand – Assez French

March 18, 2023 @ 7:30 pm - 9:00 pm

The Société francophone de Maillardville and the Simon Fraser University Bureau des affaires francophones et francophiles present as part of SFU’s Printemps de la francophonie: Alexis Normand – Assez French in concert.

By her open generosity, Alexis Normand shines a light on the points of tension faced by many francophones in minority-language situations. The Fransaskoise offers a solo concert that is carried by elegant guitar playing, finely chiseled lyrics and nuanced interpretations. Through her songs and her documentary short, French Enough, produced by the National Film Board of Canada, she recounts her personal identity journey while addressing her insecurities around language and belonging.

After intermission, she mediates a conversation and Q&A with audience members about language, identity and place. The rich exchanges that ensue allow for greater understanding of the diversity and plurality of francophone identities.
