CANADIAN STUDENTS AT IBS

On Tuesday May 20th, 49 Canadian students from Huntsville

High School were IBS guests in Aix en Provence for several performances. This group of musicians, aged 15- 18, hail from the region of Ontario and participate regularly in music festivals and competitions in Canada and the United States.

Along with their leaders, they greatly entertained our students at lunch time with a selection of their repertoire: swing, jazz and a “Motown vibe”. Through three different kinds of musical genres – a symphony orchestra, a jazz band, and a choir – strong instrumental and vocal skills were showcased.

INTERNATIONAL THEATRE COMPANY AT IBS

On Monday May 19th, the IB Theatre class had the exceptional opportunity to work with Eva Doumbia, Director of La Part du Pauvre, an international theatre company. The company rehearsed and read the play “Le Grand Écart” written by Dieudonné Niangouna, a Congolese playwright whose work has been featured at the Festival of Avignon and at the Théâtre du Vieux-Colombier at a festival of African Writers.

IBS, a member of Mécènes du Sud, (an organization which sponsors various artistic undertakings each year), was pleased to host the company before their trip to Brazzaville and Bomako. Although “Le Grand Écart” is completely in French, the students had the chance to ask questions about rehearsal techniques and to converse with the director concerning the play’s existential subject matter.
