Opening date : 23 May 2019 ‑ 7 pm
In collaboration with La Maison des arts de la parole, as part of their short text festival, a series of performances that connect text, body and voice.
Hélène Matte, honorary member of the Free University of Saint-Jambe, puts oral poetry in the abyss by coming to speak about the expert in the field: Paul Zumthor. Sextine, juggling, video poetry and vocal cords greet this late Quebec pataphysicist, who is in charge of the “language stripping chair”.
Alexis will present an excerpt from OUFF, an interdisciplinary thesis on the commodification of the young female body in the context of white supremacy. (photo. credits: Atom Cianfarani)
L‘Ô lu si de LÀ is a sound performance that explores the transformation of the performative body through its sound, textual and vocal mediations. Orality is omnipresent in this piece where performative actions reorganize in real time various texts that are vocalized to animate various occult objects or constitute the material of sound entities manifesting the invisible.
