La Poème

Featuring : Jeanne Mordoj

In the circus-based performance La poème, Jeanne Mordoj uses movement to explore a comprehensive definition of femininity. In this piece, she continues her artistic exploration of female gender, by blending prowess and weirdness, archaic symbols and jokes, by engaging her body, juggling her breasts and belly dancing, and by creating a kind of ritual mask with eggshells. She celebrates the elements of life, birth, and voice with joy and originality, casting them in the basic light of their animalistic origins.

The show will be followed by a Q&A with the artist and two special guests :

Avital Ronell and A. M. Homes


Hosted by Quentin Girard and Damien Bright (co-founders of L'Imparfaite)
