Report from REVOLUTION 07.06.10

Every bo-bo comes back to his own rebel’s yell
C’est la revolution at Culture Rapide!
It’s The Spoken Word Revolution (as Antonia shouts) and it’s the Slam Poetry World Cup in Bobigny, we have guests from all over the world: The Canadian Slam Champion: Ian Keteku, From Holland: Ellen Deckwitz, From Singapour: Marc Nair, From Madagascar: Taghan, From Germany: Philip Scharri, From Finland: Ilkka Markkula, in the good company of Mona Jean, Komi and Theodora. And Betty, Jessica, Didier. Troy, Lynn, Arian, Ben. And Jason’s singing his last “Spoken Word Blues”.

Ian Keteku

Charlie becomes Gil Scott-Heron remixing
The Revolution Will Not Be Televised.

You will not be able to stay home.
You will not be able to plug in, turn on and cop out.
You will not be able to lose yourself on drugs and
Skip out for beer during commercials,
Because the revolution will not be televised.

Ellen

The revolution will not be televised.
The revolution will not be brought to you by Ford
In four parts without commercial interruptions.
The revolution will not show you pictures of Vladimir Putin
blowing a bugle and leading a charge by Sarkosy, Barak Obama
Gordon Brown followed by representatives of the United Nations.
The revolution will not be televised.

Theodora

The revolution will not be brought to you by the
Academy Awards and will not star Nicole Kidman and
Bruce Willis or Harry Potter and sexy vampires.
The revolution will not give your mouth sex appeal.
The revolution will not get rid of body odor.
The revolution will not make you look five pounds thinner
because the revolution will not be televised.

Tagham

The revolution WILL put you in the driver’s seat.
The revolution will not be televised.
The revolution will be live.
The revolution will be live.

Mona Jean

Anna’s revolutionary himn seems made up on the spot, at the moment, in your face
And it is:

Maybe it’s time for a Revolution
I’m getting sick of this constitution

Maybe it’s time to answer the telephone
I think it’s time to go to elephone
To go to hell-e-phone

Maybe it’s getting a little bit cold now
Sometimes we all feel a little bit old now
Maybe it’s time for a revolution
I think we all know the solution.

Komi

I leave you with Nicolas’s
The freak and geek manifesto.
Just scroll down the blog.
Cheers,
Alberto
