Among the themes addressed in the interviews, artistic production during confinement stands out, the future of media like the videogame and expectations for future trips to Brazil. The first edition of the series was with the artist and photographer, or what is she called, “Inventor of true stories”, Sandra Reinflet.
The second edition of the interview series will be with the video game developer, president of the Parisian Game in Society studio, Olivier Mauco, specializing in the development of games that address artistic themes, politicians, social and educational.
Mauco, who is also a doctor of political science and a professor at the French university Sciences Po, is the director and responsible for creating the Prism 7, new game launched in partnership with Center Pompidou, in Paris, Europe's largest museum of modern and contemporary art.
Building on the museum's vast collection of masterpieces and to initiate the public on the themes of modern and contemporary art, the game addresses the principles of art, as color and light details, in a playful and educational way. In the interview he will tell the public details about the development of the Prism 7 and its operation. In addition, the specialist will discuss other projects of the Game in Society studio in the area of public governance and will be able to share his impressions of the relationship between art and videogames and the future of this media.
The third edition of the series will be with the singer Laurence Brisset, artistic director of Ensemble De Caelis, French capella singing group composed of five women. With performances suspended in Rio de Janeiro and other cities in Brazil because of social confinement, Brisset brings a sample of the group's work, their production during confinement and what can we expect from these female voices when they perform in Brazil in 2021.
Because of the epidemiological emergency that Brazil and much of the world live in this moment, the French Alliance cultural team has also prepared a French-speaking program that the public can enjoy at home during this period of social isolation. Through the AF website and social networks, several recommendations for shows will be made available, shows, movies, lectures, debates and other cultural events especially to face this moment of world crisis.

1INTERVIEW: Chat with Sandra Reinflet
The French Alliance launches a series of interviews with French-speaking artists and our first interviewee is the French artist Sandra Reinflet. Photographer, singer and author, she chose to summarize her profession as an “inventor of true stories”, because regardless of the support, his work always revolves around documentary themes. Sandra was in Brazil a few months ago as part of her VoiE.X project, series of portraits of artists who place the act of creation as an act of resistance in countries where living with art is a challenge. She tells us how this work was carried out in Brazil, what social isolation has been like for her in France and more.

ARTICLE: You already know Verlan? – Descuse this type of French slang
The cefran is zarbi, non? Maybe you are feeling a little ouf for not understanding the previous sentence. The fact is that even if you are fluent in French, may not know the verlan. The words “céfran”, “Zarbi”, “Phew”, are part of the vocabulary of this kind of French slang, widely used by the French in informal contexts, especially the younger ones. Professor Daniel Bartholomeu explained to us how this linguistic construction works and, if you want to know more, we published on our blog an article about the origin of Verlan!
