The show will be presented in French

In the midst of an election campaign, Enfabulation brings you stories in French of alliances and battles, of struggles of the personal or societal.

Presented by

Since 2017, Enfabulation produces a show in French with a very simple concept: based on a chosen theme, each performer tells a true personal story, as they lived it—no notes, costumes, or props.

Keep an eye out for another Enfabulation event on November 12. More details to come!
