Ed Bell to Guest at SpokenWord Paris November 4th–Monday’s Theme: Exile

fullsizeoutput_4915Ed Bell isn’t looking for paradise, despite the thorny road that has led him to the here and now. As host of a Paris-based literary association for the last three years, he has encountered hundreds of short, yet lived, experiences. A notable theme throughout has been that of separation, uprooting, expulsion: Odysseus tossed by a hundred Seas, and Penelope besieged by a hundred Suitors. This performance will use the media of elegiac poetry, blues piano, Norwegian dance and  plaintive voice to sing The Lamentable Tragedy of the Happy Exile.
