After digital in 2017, the "Dis-moi dix mots" operation 2018 will focus on orality.

This new edition invites everyone to wonder about the multiple uses of speech Accent - Bagou - Griot - Jactance Ohé - Placoter - Susurrer - Truculent - Voice - Volubile.

With "Dis-moi dix mots", speech is released, in a low voice or loudly, with or without accent. It is declaimed in speeches, exchanged during debates, is staged in the theater and leaves room for improvisation.

"Placoter" takes you on a trip to Canada, while "griot, griotte" takes you into African tales. Play with the accents, apostrophe your friends with a frank and energetic "ohé" or "whisper" their sweet words in their ears ... Slam or sonnet, text read or sung, everything is allowed.
