In association with Culture in the school Program
One day or another, we all need someone to help us build up our confidence or find our way. La Maîtresse rouge will provide this breath of hope to four brooding girls.
La Maîtresse rouge is a unifying musical and poetic event. This innovative experience requires the collaboration of all the teaching staff, who are asked to keep the visit of the Maîtresse rouge a secret. The piece starts off with a cryptic song. The students learn it by heart until the day that La Maîtresse rouge slips discretely into the school, accompanied by her string quartet. The four musicians walk through the halls playing their instrument, awakening the curiosity of the students. It is followed by a theatrical concert where the children are asked to sing along the song learned in class.
A STUDY GUIDE and CD containing musical excerpts and the song to be learned are sent to the school to prepare children for the upcoming performance.
To make La Maîtresse rouge and its string quartet more accessible to elementary schools, LE MOULIN À MUSIQUE came up with the “Culture at School” project that encourages the transfer of knowledge between artists, school children and teachers, and enhances the existing artistic proposal.
