Lantern festival bringing “the latin spark” to Sherbrooke this fall

By Gordon Lambie

The Théâtre des Petites Lanternes’ annual “Rivers of Light” festival is returning this fall with a little latin flair. Following the theatre company’s successful partnership with the Accès Asie festival in 2018, this year’s festival is taking place in collaboration with the LatinArte Festival and a group of local Latino-Quebecois artists to combine the established tradition of a local lantern festival with the culture and creativity of Latin America. As a part of the new partnership the festival, which takes place this year from September 23 to the 29, will include a number of workshops and activated that highlight latino-quebecois culture including a round-table discussion, a screening of the film Jericó by Colombian filmmaker Catalina Mesa, and a poetry reading by local latino-quebecois poets. See full story in the Tuesday, Sept. 10 edition of The Record.
