Sors ta langue de ta poche

The West Kootenays Francophone Association (AFKO) is launching a series of free participatory and interdisciplinary art events addressing the theme of linguistic insecurity. A playback theatre troupe will be performing stories of the audience while a local visual artist Melanie Boothe will create a live painting inspired by the conversation between the audience and the actors. Playback theatre is a form of art that invites audience members to tell a “slice of life” story, which is then retold on stage. What is linguistic insecurity? It manifests itself as a feeling of discomfort in speaking a language because of the fear of being judged for the way one expresses oneself.
