BONNE ANNEE !!! MEILLEURS VOEUX !!!
Welcome back and best wishes for this new year!
I’d like to include a few different things in this post, starting with a few pictures of the events we had at the end of last semester, and with a couple of announcements regarding this week and this semester.
First, pictures of our CHESTNUT ROASTING and FRENCH DANCE MUSIC NIGHT on Dec 8th!!!
This semester, a French comedy, “Les Fourberies de Scapin”, will be performed by Willamette students on March 1st-4th (8pm March 1st-3rd, 2pm March 4th, duration about an hour, free entrance, in Kaneko Auditorium). The play will be in French but with a lot of mimes and some English narration. We’re working a lot on the visual and we intend to make it very enjoyable for people who do not speak a word of French – and we’re having a lot of fun rehearsing this month. To give you an idea of what it could look like, here are a couple of pictures of the show we had two years ago when I was working on the same play, in New Zealand:
Tomorrow’s movie for the FRENCH MOVIE NIGHTS, after “Le Père Noël est une ordure” last week, will be “MOULIN ROUGE”, in English (let’s take it slow to begin the semester):
Finally, “The Artist”, one of the latest French movies, with Jean Dujardin, has recently won three Golden Globes and has ten nominations for an Oscar next month. It is currently shown at Salem Cinema on Broadway. Here is a link to the Salem Cinema website and the trailer for “The Artist”:
