Open Secret! Wednesdays @ Le Bistrot des Artistes, 6 rue des Anglais (a secret passage that Tinder-dates both Boulevard Saint Germain & rue Lagrange – look for the Franprix-in-the-alley) 75005 Paris. 8:30 open mic sign-up buds, & at 9pm it blooms crazily as angel-headed sunflowers! Métro Maubert-Mutualité (line 10) or Saint-Michel (line 4). Innovations in writing, song, comedy, performance art, theater, & dance, eeeeeven – strut yer proverbial stuff!
Our theme this week, inspired by our featured poet Raluca Petrescu’s fine, poignant, & masterful work, is “Words About Silence.” Her words acknowledge the presence of great poets of the past, from the classics to the moderns to more contemporary verse, but she creates a world of her own. Thought-provoking & inventive, she recites with the strong emphasis of an actor…with the driving force of sincere self-revelation, as well as honoring the power of silence. This is an event that if you miss, you may grow raaather sad about dat 😦 so come on over to Le Bistrot des Artistes for our warm weekly gathering!
