Poésie now!

Event From 26.10.2014 to 23.11.2014

© Fondation Louis Vuitton / Félix Cornu

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.
