2013 is meant to be the celebration of the life and work of Félix Leclerc and is showing us the path to 2014 as we approach his centennial year!
Dreaming of reacquiring his work such as ‘Le Petit Bonheur’ on a carnivalesque scale. With the new generation, create and interpret in living tableaux strolling through the streets of Montreal. Laughter and enchantment for a ‘Bozo’, as a foreword, finally taking possession of his marsh and his Ball in the heart of the city. A majestic work as an excuse to address the themes which are always topical and universal.
The children of Félix shared with us their memories of the work of their father like a life tale… to create an imaginary ball where wolves are howling, foxes yelping, lions roaring and where, suddenly, Bozo’s girls flowers are waltzing.
This year, under the direction of the best Montreal choreographers in their respective fields, more than 1,000 participating citizens will appropriate the various Félix Leclerc’s songs, sometimes on African, marching band, fiery tango or unchained gumboots rhythms in a Circassian, contemporary classic or sometimes plainly Italian version!
Sponsored by none other than Robert Charlebois and Félix Leclerc’s children, join us in Le Petit bonheur… in a parade!
