Poetry Performances

In the summer of 2015, Le Cycle des Berceuses project led to a series of poetry performance in public spaces at various venues in Québec City and the surrounding area. The performances featured both artists and non-artists, from children to seniors, in groups of two, three or more. These poetry performances, inspired by rocking chairs, set out to transform the landscape, create something that lies beyond the day-to-day, reaffirm our heritage, and shape a poetic time-space where we least expect it to emerge.
