“Resistance is continued attention, the undaunted groundswell that secures a voice for our smothered throats.” Our next sarau sets its tone on the wide thematic of “resistance“.
Pascale Gouverneur and her students in philology/translation will be our guests. Pascale Gouverneur is a Brussels poetess. Her art explores the portrait and the bestiary, whether in poetry or painting. An expert in black, white and grey, she fears no colours. Her last book, Pièces de résistance, was published in 2018 at erbacce-press.
Reading with Pascale Gouverneur, USLB students Victoire Dubus, Christelle Osei Danso and Léa Vantorre.
Librebook’s saraus are music & poetic nights where you are the hero. After hearing the poems of our guests, it is your turn to step up and share, in any given language, your creations or coups de coeur. All while the live music is playing.
As always, the bar will be open !
Alive and kicking
Resistance is continued attention, the undaunted groundswell that secures a voice for our smothered throats. Poetry undeniably inhabits that one millimeter of air above the earth, as the Russian poet Marina Tsvetaeva worded it. It is closest to our tribulations, it resists and heralds the hopes for change and harmony beyond our limitations to nurture our resilience. It embraces all our vacillating, perplexed, irritated, roaring voices, writes a chant whose beat scands our steps. Marching on the frontline, brandishing humour, meandering through our goodwill, diving into the heart of our renunciations too, resistance walks the deep ways, and lifts us back to breathe, unrelentlessly.” (P. Gouverneur)
