Cabaret Poétique : Kenny Ozier-Lafontaine + Hassan Guaid

dimanche 19 janvier 2020


• Every month or so, the Cabaret Poétique invites poets to gather, listen and share the colours that their words invite in sound. This weekend, the Cabaret Poétique invokes what is bigger than us, a beauty to take away, to reveal. 

For this session :

Hassan Guaid

Hassan Guaid has been combining his activities as an author, composer and singer with writing and "direct poetry" workshops for many years.
His workshops and training courses reflect his artistic career at the crossroads of disciplines: between writing, singing, poetry, rap, music and staging, Hassan Guaid likes to challenge codes and mix labels.

Hassan is also known in the music world as "Experimental". He has released several albums, mainly focused on rap music: Unknown Soldier(s), Legal Weapons in two volumes or Handcuffs. Involved since 2008 in the Caravan of Ten Words Rhône-Alpes project, Hassan shares his pleasure in words with very diverse audiences, cultivating a predilection for intergenerational groups.

Les C.A.P maçons from Tony Garnier Highschool

(voice of the poet Patrick Laupin's writing workshop):

Patrick Laupin is a French writer.
He spent his childhood in the Cévennes, in a family of underground miners. For ten years he worked as a teacher and for twenty years as a trainer of social workers, constantly creating a space for the transmission of reading and writing in places of literacy and internment, with adults, children and adolescents who had lost their social ties.
He has published some twenty books (poetry, prose, stories, philosophy). All his books, published since 1975, bear witness to a sparkling and harmonious writing, and his intense and generous poetry denounces a "world without prayer" and, for this reason, "human desertion".
