Poésie now!

Programme designed by Jérôme Game


Sound poetry, lyric poetry, digital poetry, prose poetry, video poetry, performance poetry, conference poetry... Open  to different languages, geographical areas, generations, and all kinds of formats and styles, the aim of this programme is to discover the rich diversity of what is covered by the word 'poetry' today, as an act of feeling, expression and thought in the world.

Poetry  is connected  to everything and stubbornly refuses to be locked into a single definition. It is constantly in motion and knows no borders. It captures and participates in the entire hybrid nature of contemporary creativity. And what it offers is a new ability to grasp things, recompose them, and thus create new life forms.

Contemporary poetry never stops reinventing itself and everything around it. It is this energy then that Poetry Now! wants to share with the public through live experiences.
