Cornichon: un parcours perplexe vers la francophonie

25 mai
Théâtre La Comédie de Montréal  

Nisha Coleman - Cornichon - Square_Colour.jpg

Nisha est une conteuse. Dans ce premier spectacle en français, elle va nous raconter avec humour l'histoire improbable de son apprentissage du français : d'une salle de classe de maternelle aux rues de Paris, elle nous partage cette folle et cocasse aventure. 

A la fois drôle et touchante, Nisha vous emmène avec douceur dans son monde! Grande amoureuse de la langue française, elle vous fera rire de sa découverte des mots et de leur utilisation.

Ecrit et interprété par Nisha Coleman

The Earth is changing fast.

How bad is it? The animals gather to find out. When they realize it’s humans behind the destruction, they must decide what to do. Could they send them to another planet? Or do humans need their help? The animals write them a letter, reminding humans of nature’s gifts and how to turn things around before it’s too late.

An accessible, honest, and sweet way to get your little one in on the important mission of saving our planet.
— Cleo Stiller, Emmy and Peabody Award winning author of Modern Manhood 

It is so important to give children the space to express their big feelings about climate change. Dear Humans does just this—with humour, heart, and hope.
