December 2013 – Simon Dumas + Philippe Franck : Chœurs poétiques – Quebec

As an extension of our recent collaboration Les Transatlantiques (photo of the participants after the performance the Sonic Garden Party at the recent festival City Sonic Mons ), Simon Dumas, artistic director of Rhizome Productions ( Quebec) and poet, and Philippe Franck, artistic director of Transcultures (Mons) and sound designer are working on a multi-video projection 360 degrees device with a virtual choir of nine poets. To each is associated lyrical- videographic landscape and a audio track composed by sound artists ( Meriol Lehmann, Erick Orion, Simon Elmaleh, Martin Tétreault, Mirianne Rouillard and Mathieu Campagna for Quebec, and Stephan Ink, Philippe Franck and Gauthier Keyaerts for the Federation Wallonia-Brussels) . Poetic presences are those of the Quebecers Annie Lafleur, Jean- Marc Desgent, Hervé Bouchard, Josée Marcotte, Alexis Lussier, Marc- Antoine K. Phaneuf and Simon Dumas, and of the Belgians Werner Moron and Sebastian Dicenaire.
