English Abstract : Transversal

« Transversal »: free poetic contributions by the members of Paalabres, followed by three escapes to related concepts:
• Hybrid forms. Many recent artistic approaches can be characterized as “hybrid” (music/theatre, sound poetry, graphic scores, sound sculptures, etc.), not in the sense of superimposing several artistic domains (as in opera), but in real encounters mingling several domains.
• Plural forms of culture. Reference: Michel de Certeau, Culture in the Plural, translated by Tom Conley, University of Minnesota Press, 1998.
• Creolization of the world. Reference: Edouard Glissant, Poetics of Relation, trans. Betsy Wing, Ann Arbor: University of Michigan Press, 1997.
