Les Lucioles is a 6-episode podcast series for young people, written by Sophie Léonard-Dufour and directed by Sabrina Auclair, and whose writing and artistic research is made possible by the TEC. During this creation stage, the Lucioles team will offer free public readings to children from various backgrounds, in partnership with community centers, elementary schools, youth organizations, as well as during the Journées de la culture. These meetings will allow us to do artistic research for the project, by offering cultural mediation workshops to young people, and discussions concerning their appreciation of the texts, in order to adapt them as much as possible to the target audience. These workshops will allow the children to be directly involved in the creative process of the project and, for many, will bring them into contact with the theater for the very first time.
