About the Company “Contes à tout va”

Fifteen years ago, four individuals came together to create a space where stories could be heard, seen and performed! After all, stories are told not only by the voice, but also by space and bodies. The storytellers from “Contes à tout va” aim to carry their audience away on a path of imagination, be it pleasant or tortuous, calm or vertiginous, black, gray, white or even multicoloured! They perform mostly within the intimacy of a home where friends and family unite over stories and good food.

Tales are a common good of humanity and they create bridges between cultures: one can narrate Indian fairy tales in French, and also find similar narratives in the European universe. It’s a wonderful journey that unfolds most naturally once it’s begun!” - Aliette Lauginie

Aliette Lauginie first encountered the art of storytelling more than 30 years ago when she was a librarian. Tales, which are the first narrative of humanity, attract the young and old, and create a special lapse in time as they are being narrated. Lauginie is also a teacher of French as a Foreign Language (FLE), and finds that fairy tales are wonderful tools to build self-expression in a foreign language, be it oral or written. She has co-authored the textbook “Il était une fois des contes” (Once upon a time, there were fairy tales), published by the Presses Universitaires de Grenoble and used widely by FLE teachers and students in order to strengthen their skills in written and oral comprehension.
