This year, the Journées de la culture are celebrating their 25th anniversary. It is by drawing inspiration from the provincial theme Travel in time that the City of Saint-Eustache will deploy, on September 24, 25 and 26, a rich and varied cultural program that will please everyone.
“With the forced break last year due to the pandemic, we are delighted to invite the population to participate in the many activities that will be offered as part of this great cultural celebration”, said Mayor Pierre Charron at the time of the announcement. “Of course, all measures will be taken to ensure compliance with health instructions. We look forward to welcoming you! “, he added.
Music and dance shows
The “Talents de chez nous” show will be back this year at Le Zénith. A range of amateur and emerging artists will tread the boards to transmit their passion to the public during a free performance on September 25 at 2:30 pm where Rock fans will be able to discover the original songs of the group EVER, while fans of rap will be delighted with Samy the Artist. Still in song, Jacinthe Loubert, Gabrielle Grenon as well as NEV will share the microphone during the evening. Dance will also be in the spotlight with the contemporary dance solo by Léanne Roussel and the dance and song number of the Académie des arts Trouve ta Voie. Finally, Lyne L’Espérance, participant in the show En Studio, broadcast on TVA in November 2020, will close the show.
Still in the musical register, the Quebec singer-songwriter Jordane will come to present a show from her “12 days” tour which echoes her most recent album of the same name.
In addition to these shows, a series of fun activities will be offered at the Guy-Bélisle library for ages 7 to 77, including digital music workshops, a digital graffiti workshop, a participatory exhibition of musical creation from real fruits and finally, workshops for creating animated video and image projection (video mapping).
Sound and light projections on the church of Saint-Eustache
Based on works produced by citizens during video creation workshops, a projection session will illuminate the facade of the historic church of Saint-Eustache, which will be accompanied by a tailor-made musical track orchestrated by DJ Alexandra Rodriguez Ramirez.
“Culture is still very much alive in Saint-Eustache, as evidenced by the program announced. There are plenty of opportunities to learn about new passions or, quite simply, to appreciate local talents! », concluded municipal councilor Raymond Tessier, responsible for cultural issues in Saint-Eustache.
