Not all great talents are great stars. Discovering them, despite their relative obscurity, is a keenly felt pleasure. We gain an appreciation for our environment, capable of offering such beautiful presences. We share the thrill of a brand-new performance. We experience a moment of beautiful guidance that wants to do good, just by forging a link.

It’s in this spirit that La Slague invites you to “Au bistro des découvertes“. This intimate concert series is carefully curated, with new talent personally recommended by seasoned French Ontario artists. Our old hands on the music scene are well placed to make good musical acquaintances, and like us, the stars love to share their finds with their friends. So be one of their friends!

Au Bistro des Découvertes, you’ll come for the good atmosphere, the good food, the good music, the good company, all under the guidance of the evening’s artist godparents, to create an intimate and convivial evening with their protégés.

An initiative of La Slague, under the artistic direction of Dan Bédard.

**One Tuesday per month from September to December **. 

Novembre 14 – Cécile Doo-Kingué presents…

New Yorker by birth, Cameroonian by origin, she’s a citizen of the world, including our corner of it. In addition to her smooth, lived-in voice, she makes her guitar sing in her own distinctive way. Her unique style blends blues, soul, music and African rhythms. Strong and sincere, her lyrics, guitar and voice create bewitching moments of intimacy.

Nadine Altounji

Nadine Altounji is a Montreal-based singer-songwriter and multi-instrumentalist (piano, guitar, oud) whose musical roots run deep in the fertile Syrian soil of her parents. Her debut solo EP I Still (2016), incorporates folk and pop with Middle Eastern music, and her album The Stories that Tie Us to Trees combines Middle Eastern and South American musical traditions. She collaborates with Wayne Tennant and Imani Gospel Singers, and has some 30 concerts to her credit around the world, including at the Festival afropolitain nomade in Cameroon, Pop Montréal and the MUZ festival.

La Slague continues with the solidarity ticket system!

For the 2021-2022 season, Carrefour francophone and La Slague are letting you decide how much to pay to attend our shows or purchase our artistic products.

Why are we doing this?

  • Because rich and rewarding cultural experiences should be available to everyone.
  • Because all of Sudbury’s Francophones and Francophiles should be welcome in a supportive and vibrant community.
  • Because belonging to a culture and the quality of life fostered by the arts are human rights.

How do I determine my ticket price?

Following a number of comments and suggestions, we decided to redefine our solidarity ticketing categories to make them more inclusive and more representative of the public who attend our events.

We now opt for a “pay what you can” approach, so that our spectators feel comfortable choosing the rate that suits their current situation. What’s more, the Welcome Ticket gives new spectators the opportunity to discover our activities without judgement or compromise.

Here are the new categories !

Easy Peasy Ticket : A ticket to make your life easier. An ordinary, simple and easy ticket option. You want to pay the show’s worth? Then, congratulations! You’ve chosen the easiest option… with no snags or complications!

Good Scout Ticket : A ticket to help us out when things are going your way. You love cultural events and you want to lend us a helping hand? The Good Scout Ticket is what you’re looking for! So give yourself a good pat on the back, you’ve paid the show’s worth…and more!

No Stress Ticket : A ticket so you can enjoy the show without worrying too much about the price. Are you a student or a senior? Do you have a lot of unexpected expenses this month? You’re always showing up at cultural events but it’s starting to hurt your wallet? No stress, we got you! We want you to enjoy the show… and get a drink if you want to!

Welcome Ticket : A ticket for your first cultural experience. We promise you a good time. So your first show is on us. You know someone who’s curious about la Slague and you want them to join in and enjoy the show? Offer them a Welcome Ticket, and they’ll have fun, that’s for sure!

We would like to thank the Théâtre Cercle Molière in Winnipeg, which inspired this new payment scale!

La Slague is a member of the Coalition for Fair Ticketing, which brings together cultural organizations wishing to jointly reflect on best accessibility ticketing practices and thus promote access to art and culture.
