March is dedicated to Francophonie, a celebration of the French language and culture. This year, Institut français Singapour, together with Alliance française and other institutions where the French language and culture plays an important role celebrate Francophonie on a grand scale – with concerts, theatre, film screenings and competitions held the length of March. The celebrations begin with French Indie-pop duo, BRIGITTE, performing live in Singapore for the very first time, on Friday 14 March at the Alliance française Theatre.
The Lycée français is also planning a special programme during the Francophonie week. Students will participating to activities such as storytelling, poems, and literature of various times of history. There will also be the official exhibition “dis-moi dix mot…à la folie!” which will be presented with the students’ works around and beyond these words.
On Saturday 22 March 2014, Singapore’s best French students gather at Alliance française for a combined award ceremony. Please see the details below. There is something for everyone, so join us!
