    Festival international Contes en Îles

    The international Storytelling Festival "Contes en Îles", flagship of oral heritage in the Magdalen Islands is coming back for a 16th edition. This year, bearers of different histories and traditions will plow the land and scour the seas in order to harvest for you the fruits of the collective imaginary. Madelinots storytellers will once again be joined by artists from the mainland, the Americas or overseas in the context of performances, chats, narrated excursions and awards.

    Nicolas Landry, conteur

    A poet of the sea, the wind and the far horizon, this young Madelinot storyteller spreads his nets in the memories of his ancestors, speaking in homage to their wisdom and their heritage. In the accents of his younger days, he takes us on a tour of a society poised precariously between the traditional and modern worlds. He illustrates the importance of traditions and the uniqueness of his people. His stories, profound, subtle and sensitively rendered, bring to life the legends of Island life... a magical visit to his own personal corner of paradise.
