The word for Peace in French is Paix
(Pronounced in English: “pay” barely touching the, “y.”)
For Folkmoot 2015 we will say Peace in French (along with several other languages).
The Manigance Compagnie de Danse, from the town of Sainte-Marie in the Beauce region of Quebec, will be one of the featured performing troupes during Folkmoot Festival 2015. Don’t miss the chance to experience the rich culture, music, and dance they are bringing to WNC!
Founded in 1984 by Lise Sirianni, Manigance, the troupe includes dancers all from all over Beauce who perform exclusively Quebecois dances and jigs, among the best and most spectacular.
The success of Manigance comes down to his passion for the jig, dance and music as well as its commitment to the people around him. That is why Manigance always recreates a festive amibance that each one can not help but dance and sing.
Manigance transports you to the heart of the origins of the Quebec dance and its history. With Manigance discover tradition and modernism, warmth and simplicity, agility and virtuosity. Manigance will make you dance and introduce you to québecoises traditional percussion.
