The Marius-Barbeau Documentation Center is happy to be partners with The Canadian Museum of Civilisation in its project « Marius Barbeau, a Canadian hero and his period 1883-1969 ».

We wish to acknowledge the financial support of the Department of Canadian Heritage through Canadian Culture Online.

On that site, Heritage Canada displays a sampling from a wealth of documents relating the history of the two dance companies.

Peasant Costume

Costume of traditional inspiration.
The girl’s costume is Victorian, circa 1850, presumably from the St-François-de-Beauce region.
The boy’s costume is presumably from the Quebec area, 1800-1850.
The history of how these costumes were realized is told in a book, now in preparation, about Les Sortilèges and the Marius-Barbeau Documentation Center.
