On March 11th at 8 pm, Canadian artist Mathieu Lippé and French singer Luciole will take us on a journey of discovery of Slam. Between poetry and spoken word, this art form, accompanied or not by music, has become a real forum for expression and a celebration of language. Join us on March 11 at 8pm for a Facebook and a YouTube Live.
Mathieu Lippé‘s spoken word follows its path over time and is coloured by the people it touches through as if they were landscapes. A native of Kamouraska, Quebec, Mathieu Lippé deconstructs and reconstructs reality through his songs, tales and dazzling slam poetry. He diverts language and feelings in a way that leaves us without speechless. With a bachelor’s degree in literature and musical culture from the Université de Sherbrooke, Mathieu Lippé won the gold medal at the 6th “Jeux de La Francophonie” in the storytelling category in 2009 and second place at the Poetry World Cup the same year in Paris.
French Slam champion, speaker for TEDxCannes, artist multiplying collaborations (Gaël Faye, Hugh Coltman, Grand Corps Malade, Mélissa Laveaux, Sandra Nkaké…),Luciole has been making her words and her voice resonate in the French-speaking song scene for more than ten years. From 2016, she will also make Quebec a new home base participating in the double residency of the “Rencontres qui Chantent” de Petite Vallée, programmed twice at the “Francofolies de Montréal”, and playing at the “Festival Coup de Cœur Francophone”.
