Yoann Thommerel — Mon corps n’obéit plus


Performance, poetry

Yoann Thommerel
Mon corps n’obéit plus

Past: Friday, January 13, 2017 8 PM → 11 PM

From his earliest years, Yoann Thommerel has been aware of the indocility of his body. And contrary to what those around him might have hoped, maturity has done nothing to change this. Today, his body continues to obstinately refuse to comply with certain instructions that pervade our lives, namely this one: Learn to stay in one’s place and not go beyond the bounds.
Throwing himself into writing, the author has decided to pay closer attention than ever to his body. It is with his body that he writes andit is conjointly that they will be delivering this small selection of poems on excess.

“Soon my body will be a clamour, my body will be a million.”

The performance will be preceded by a reading by Sonia Chiambretto, Yoann Thommerel and Erwan Guignard.


In residency at Les Laboratoires d’Aubervilliers since January 2016, writers Yoann Thommerel and Sonia Chiambretto, in association with the Groupe d’information sur les Ghettos (g.i.g.), interrogate mechanisms of exclusion and withdrawal. They create and activate protocols for reflection shared with local residents, artists and researchers, mainly grounding their practice in the collective writing of questionnaires and their circulation.
