Collection des monologues de la Sagouine



In September 2016, LE PAYS DE LA SAGOUINE village and theme park asked director Renée Blanchar to film the monologues of Antonine Maillet’s La Sagouine, as interpreted by actress Viola Léger. Léger played the character brilliantly for more than 40 years but as fate would have it, the amazing performances she delivered in the final shoot turned out to be her last. Léger is no longer able to perform due to ailing health. The Ça Tourne Productions team handled post-production of the monologues, which were released in June 2017 at a « tribute to Viola Léger » held at the Capitol theatre in Moncton, in front of a packed house and adoring crowd.
