Un Ouragan d’air frais

A show featuring young artists. A gust of fresh air. In French.


For a great ending to a day devoted to new voices, new publishers and new production houses, the FVA has invited 13 young poets, performers and writers to shake the cage: Jade Bérubé and Éric Dupont, whose work is published by Marchand de feuilles; “poètes de brousse” Alexandre Faustino and David Wormäker; Àlain Farah, Renée Gagnon and Daniel Canty who publishes with the Éditions du Quartanier and the poetry magazine C’est Selon; Claudine Vachon and Stéphane Surprenant from Les Éditions Rodrigol; Patrick Brisebois from L’Effet Pourpre; the discerning Mathieu Laliberté and l’Ensemble Camp; and the eclectic free-noise duo of A_dontigny and David Turgeon.

To add a bit of anarchy and keep things moving on stage, the FVA will bring in none other than the sporty Abdigradationnistes as hosts for the evening.
