On March 18 and 19, the TIlt Kids Festival co-produced by FIAF (French Institute Alliance Française) and The Cultural Services of the French Embassy will present the U.S. debut of the French company La Cordonnerie with the performances of "Snow White and the Fall of the Berlin Wall." Before leaving for New York, and while in Japan for professional meetings, La Cordonnerie (Samuel, Timothée, and Méthilde) spoke with us about their work.
On March 19, 2016, as part the Tilt Kids Festival, the Cultural Services of the French Embassy in New York initiated a one-of-a-kind event for children, inspired by the French books "Les Goûters Philo". Under the starry ceiling of Albertine Books, 80 children gathered in small groups to deep dive into philosophy and express their thoughts on subjects such as friendship and the infinite. The workshops were led by Critchley’s PhD students, who shared their experiences with us following this first-time event.
