Experience French culture with our events

Because French is more than a language, the Alliance Française proposes many events throughout the year to help you to live French culture.  

Upcoming events

Theatrical Production of The Stranger by Albert Camus

Bare Witness Theatre Co. supported by Ainslie and Gorman Arts Centres presents: The Stranger by Albert Camus
8th - 11th of December 7:30pm, Tickets: $25-30 at Humanitix, The Ralph Wilson Theatre, Gorman Arts Centre

One of Canberra’s most celebrated actors, Christopher Samuel Carroll, delivers a performance of searing intensity in this solo adaptation of a startlingly modern classic. From the infamous opening line, “Maman died today”, the character of Meursault states his case with unflinching directness, confronting his listeners with a story of alienation, chance and life-shattering choices that takes a scalpel to the hypocrisy of civil society.
