The show, which was originally commissioned and developed for the 2009 Champlain Quadricentennial Celebration in Burlington, Vermont, toured New England in the years that followed, and for the past several years has been available on DVD here on my website. Based on interviews with Franco-Americans of different ages and backgrounds, Piecework: When We Were French explores the legacy of French-Canadian immigration and culture in Vermont and northern New England. I learned a great deal during my tour —and since— about Franco-American people and culture, and it’s been deeply gratifying to see interest in the show persist as time has gone by. Streaming is an exciting way for me to continue to make the show accessible to audiences. I hope you’ll enjoy it!
Thanks to my friends at VIDEOSyncracies in Vermont for making this possible.
