Poésie Plate-forme — Balbutier

Poésie Plate-forme

Past: Thursday, May 16, 2019 7 PM → 9 PM

This “Stammering” session will feature Luc Bénazet and Jérôme Game in conversation. Both are poets, whom we will first hear reading their own texts in line with the principle of these “Poésie Plate-forme” meetings. Making fresh use of the tools and customs of poetic modernity, they inventively create new sound and speech spaces, between feeling and understanding.

Luc Bénazet | is a poet. He has published four books with Éditions Nous: nÉcrit (2009), La vie des noms (2012), Articuler (2015) and Incidents (2018); and he has also co-written two books of exchanges with Benoît Casas: Envoi (2012) and Annonce (2015), published by Héros-Limite. He recently released the tale Rainal (Eric Pesty, 2018). He creates short films with Sébastien Laudenbach. He has released a first album, GRAMMATA, with musicians Deborah Lennie and Patrice Grente (8clos, 2017). With Victoria Xardel, he edits the magazine Les divisions de la joie. He regularly gives public readings of his texts in France and abroad.

Jérôme Game | is a poet, writer and theorist. He lives between Paris and New York, where he teaches film studies. He has published around fifteen books, which have recently included Développements (Manucius, 2015) and Salle d’embarquement (L’Attente, 2017), usually accompanied by a CD. He is also the author of several essays on contemporary aesthetics (visual, literary, theoretical) and its political dimension, such as Sous influence : Ce que l’art contemporain fait à la literature (MAC/VAL, 2012), and he was the editor of the collective books Le récit aujourd’hui (P.U.V., 2011) and Images des corps/Corps des images au cinema (ENS Éditions, 2010). He regularly gives public readings of his texts in France and abroad, alone or in collaboration with others like videographer Valérie Kempeneers, stage director Cyril Teste, electronic musician Chloé, choreographer David Wampach and composer Olivier Lamarche.

This Poésie Plate-forme meeting is presented to echo the programme Poésie Sonore : La voix libérée, Palais de Tokyo, 21 March — 16 May 2019.
