Petanque is a French game of boules, born in Marseille in the south of France. It is a game played in teams of two against two, often with 3 balls each and a “cochonnet”, a small ball.
The objective is to score points by placing your balls closer to the goal than your opponent in relation to the ball. This game has also made the phrase “Tu tires où tu pointes ?” (You shoot where you point ?) famous.
On a canvas, we have drawn symbolic elements of French-speaking countries such as the Eiffel Tower, the hibiscus, the maple leaf, cheese… The public will be invited to colour these elements and add their own creativity in the available space.
The discovery of a country also includes its culinary specialities! This is why we invited 7 natives from 7 French-speaking countries, Lebanon, Tahiti, Tunisia, Canada, France, Mauritius and Burundi, to share some of their specialities with the public ; colours, spices, different dishes, will take the public on a culinary journey !
This year the theme of the Francophonie is “time” and it proposes to explore 10 words: year-light, déjà-vu, lambiner, tic-tac, synchronous, plus-que-parfait, dare-dare, rythmer, avant-jour, and hivernage. The French illustrator Armelle will propose a painting in connection with these ten words.
The story of four brothers who promise to put their differences aside at their father’s funeral to pay their last respects. The brothers, who have nothing in common, their wives and their many children go to the summer house on the Magdalen Islands to say their last goodbyes and spread the ashes of the man who was so important to each of them. When Nicolas, the youngest brother, loses the urn containing their father’s ashes, the conflicts begin.
In the garden of the Alliance Française of Chandigarh, these two evenings will be accompanied by music in a friendly, artistic atmosphere and placed under the sign of discovery and sharing !
