The FIAF Crossing the Line Festival 2022 brings a diverse group of Francophone performing artists to New York City. Ooh la la.
One of the legacies of French colonialism today is a diverse group of French speakers all around the world. The FIAF Crossing the Line Festival brings really interesting French-speaking artists to New York City. It is reprogramming the colonial narrative in an inclusive manner. This is modern France. C’est bien!
The French mind is a little different from the American one (to say the least). There is a simple, but profound sensitivity to humor, irony, and visual design that is uniquely French.
