Open Secret, 2nite! With very special guest poet Lisa Ducasse: “What makes us us…”


Open Secret! An innovative open mic every Wednesday @ Le Bistrot des Artistes, 6 rue des Anglais, 5è Paris. At 8:30, all-night sign-up starts, & 9 the show…Métro Maubert-Mutualité (line 10) or Saint-Michel (line 4). With special guest poet is Lisa Ducasse! And the theme was inspired by her poem, “Silence has fallen on Paris night,” which concerns November’s attacks. She will be accompanied by master saxophonist Evan Laflamme…

Lisa Ducasse is a poet born in Mauritius and currently living in Paris. First published at the age of thirteen, and later in Mauritian poetry magazine Point Barre. She is currently working on releasing her first collection of poems, built around the questions of youth and the feelings that shape and make us… us. Her fascination for the former is perhaps best justified by Patti Smith’s interrogation in her novel Just Kids: “Who can know the heart of youth but youth itself?”. And as for feelings… aren’t they, in the end, all we have, all we really have? And isn’t that part of the magic?
