Friday, the 18th of February 6:00pm-9:00pm
Come and join us at Alliance Française for a New Caledonian themed evening.
The event will start with an introduction to New Caledonian culture followed by a themed dinner, created by Chef Christophe Gregoire, who studied New-Caledonian cuisine for three years. The menu was prepared in a way that allowed participants e to have an insight into the culture’s cuisine and gastronomy. The evening will end with the screening of the documentary "Belep danse autour de la Terre" by Jean-Louis Comolli.
"Belep danse autour de la Terre", Jean-Louise Comolli
The dances and songs of the small island of Belep in New Caledonia ritualize every action of daily life. Fishing, making nets, preparing dishes, working the land are thus transcended by dances and songs which serve as elements of transmission of knowledge and culture.
