36ste Nacht van de Poëzie. Het grootste poëziefeest van het jaar

Het grootste poëziefeest van het jaar kent in 2018, op 29 september, zijn 36ste editie, in de vertrouwde Grote Zaal van TivoliVredenburg in Utrecht. De beste Nederlandstalige dichters, van debutant tot veteraan, bieden het publiek een poëtische marathon die zijn weerga niet kent.

En dan zijn er nog muzikale entr’actes, die de dichters gedurende de avond in razend tempo afwisselen.

De Nacht van de Poëzie betovert haar bezoekers tot diep in de nacht en laat ze met een glimlach huiswaarts keren.

Onder de dichters bevinden zich dit jaar onder meer ‘nachtveteraan’ Judith Herzberg, P.C. Hooftprijswinnaar Willem Jan Otten en Radna Fabias, die dit jaar de C. Buddingh’-prijs voor het beste debuut in ontvangst mocht nemen. Na ruim duizend optredens, maakt Arthur Japin zijn debuut op De Nacht naar aanleiding van zijn bundel Nachtkaravaan, met liedjes en gedichten. Verder zijn er dichters die schrijven over dwaallichten en vloekschriften, buigt de een zich over het paringsritueel en de ander over de begrafenis van de mannen. Iemand zegt: ‘Ik was een hond’, een ander begint een oefening in het alleen lopen; er zijn lofzangen op een kapstok en een röntgenfotomodel. ‘Zo kan het niet langer,’ foetert de een, ‘het leven deugt, althans, op onderdelen’, besluit de ander. De bundeltitels van de optredende dichters tijdens deze nacht beloven alvast een bonte parade van taalgiganten, fluisterdichters, tongbrekers en woordacrobaten.

De presentatie van de avond is als vanouds in handen van het Nachtduo Piet Piryns & Ester Naomi Perquin. In de aanloop naar De Nacht worden steeds meer dichters en muzikanten bekend gemaakt.

Tip: met een Nacht-de-Luxe-kaart ontloop je de Nachtelijke Volksverhuizing, zoals Ingmar Heytze het ooit noemde, waarbij je nooit zeker weet of je stoel nog vrij is.

 

Dit seizoen is er ook weer een KinderNacht van de Poëzie! Kinderen kunnen samen met hun ouders, familie en vriendjes luisteren naar grappige gedichten en raadselachtige rijmpjes.

Radna Fabias – Ester Naomi Perquin – Arthur Japin – Arno Van Vlierberghe – The Tallest Man On Earth – Kreek Daey Ouwens – Rodaan Al-Galidi – Moya De Feyter – Ted van Lieshout – Piet Piryns – Tsead Bruinja – Thomas Möhlmann – Anton Korteweg – Anneke Claus – Benno Barnard – Paul Bogaert – Delphine Lecompte – Willem Thies – Vicky Francken – Judith Herzberg

Forum of Live Art Amsterdam 2018 in Arti et Amicitiae

FLAM (Forum of Live Art Amsterdam) 2018 is een jaarlijks terugkerende tentoonstelling in Arti et Amicitiae, waarin de grote verscheidenheid aan uitingen binnen de hedendaagse performancekunst ruimte krijgt.

FLAM VIII
Look at me, then look at me again
FLAM LIVE: 4 – 7 SEPTEMBER
FLAM ENCOUNTER: 12 – 30 SEPTEMBER

 

De achtste editie vangt aan met FLAM Live: een intensieve week van live-kunst, waarin het lichaam met diens vele betekenissen het medium is. Deze editie wordt uitgebreid met FLAM Encounter: een tentoonstelling met installaties die op verschillende manieren hun oorsprong vinden in een performance. Middels deze transformatie biedt FLAM VIII een podium voor zowel de efemere als de materiële kant van diverse artistieke praktijken.

Om verschillende perspectieven op de werken te activeren hanteert FLAM VIII een metaforisch kader. De performances in de live-week worden opgevat als elementen van een wilde tuin; de toeschouwers worden uitgenodigd door de wilde tuin te dwalen, en samen met anderen de live-ervaring te delen.

De tentoonstelling wordt opgevat als een cruise-tuin, waarin objecten een beweging aansporen. FLAM Encounter nodigt het publiek uit om met een cruisende attitude de tentoonstellingszalen te betrekken, verschillende gezichtspunten in te nemen en een persoonlijke relatie aan te gaan met de objecten en andere lichamen in de ruimte. Het programma is ontworpen om onverwachte kruisbestuivingen te genereren tussen de kunstenaars, hun werk en het publiek.

 

Richard John Jones, Matthew Day, Richard John Jones, Maison JaJa, Dionisios Argyropoulos Ioannou, Sara Giannini, Pauline Jardin Curnier, Clementine Edwards, Tirza Kater, Wilfried Tomescu, Giorgos Tsiongas, Rabea Ridlhammer, Lukas Hoffmann, Clara Saito – Christopher Tym, Kurt Dickriot, Lady Dada, Natasha Papadopoulou, keyon gaskin, Rose Akras, Titus Nouwens, Olivia Reschofsky, Alice Pons, Emilia Thorin, Alina Lupu, Jan-Pieter ’t Hart, Bea Correa, Katja Vercouteren, Alex Bailey, Roland Rauschmeier, Rebecca Chaillon, Tomislav Feller, Andrea Folache Zavala, Astrit Ismaili, Mami Kang, Maria Metsalu, Dora Longo Bahia, Harold Offeh, Marijn Ottenhof, Vincent Riebeek, Nicolas Roses, Mathias Ringgenberg, Antonia Steffens, Julian Weber, Philipp Gufler, Maria Metsalu, Hannah Perry, Sarah van Lamsweerde, Erin Hill

The Circus. A Visual History by Pascal Jacob

This beautiful book charts the development of the circus as an art form around the world, from antiquity to the present day.

Using over 200 circus related artworks from the French National Library’s private collections, celebrated cultural historian Pascal Jacob tells the story of travelling entertainers and their art and trade. From nomadic animal tamers of the Dark Ages to European jugglers and acrobats of the 1800s, from the use of the circus as Soviet propaganda to the 20th-century Chinese performance art renaissance, this is an exhaustive history with a uniquely international scope.

Jacob draws on both rare and famous artworks, including prints dating from the 13th century, and paintings by Picasso and Doré. In doing so he demonstrates the circus to be a visual and physical masterpiece, constantly moving and evolving, and just as exciting an experience for audiences now as it was 1,000 years ago.

Pascal Jacob is a prominent circus arts historian who lectures at the Sorbonne, France. He wrote on Cultural History, History and Theory of Art, Theatre History and Criticism.

Kunstenfestival Watou 2018 nog t/m 2 september

Elke zomer opnieuw slaat het Kunstenfestival van Watou haar tenten op in het gelijknamige kunstdorpje aan de Franse grens.

 

Dichters en beeldend kunstenaars, aanstormend talent en gevestigde waarden, kunstwerken uit binnen- en uit buitenland strijken er neer en vormen een bijzonder kunstenparcours. Het dorp is de setting en biedt een tiental karakteristieke locaties als tentoonstellingsruimte: een voormalig klooster, een oude boerderij of de kelder van een brouwerij. De wisselwerking tussen die verrassende, nostalgische ruimtes met hedendaagse beeldende kunst en poëzie zorgt telkens weer voor een unieke kunstbeleving. Zomeren in Watou is dan ook prikkelen en onthaasten tegelijk. Kleine momenten van gelukzaligheid.

Iedere editie van het Kunstenfestival kadert in een ander thema, waarrond intendant Jan Moeyaert en poëziecurator Willy Tibergien beeld en taal samenbrengen. Schrijvers, dichters en kunstenaars palmen gedurende een zomer het dorp in en bieden de bezoekers een caleidoscoop aan inzichten en perspectieven rond een bepaald onderwerp.

De afgelopen edities van Kunstenfestival Watou groeide er gestaag een nieuwe poëtische lijn in het dorp. Ook dit jaar selecteerde poëziecurator Willy Tibergien gedichten van gevestigde waarden in het Nederlandstalig poëzielandschap om hen een permanente plaats te geven in Watou.

Aan het werk van Eddy van Vliet, Paul Snoek, Remco Campert, Hugues C. Pernath, Jean-Claude Pirotte, Leo Vroman, Miriam Van hee, Stefan Hertmans, Gerrit Kouwenaar en Marc Insingel, Leonard Nolens, Christine D’Haen, Joost Zwagerman, Jotie T’Hooft, Charles Ducal en Luuk Gruwez worden dit jaar gedichten van Anna Enquist, Eva Gerlach en Frans Deschoemaeker toegevoegd.

Michelle Witen: James Joyce and Absolute Music

Drawing on draft manuscripts and other archival material, James Joyce and Absolute Music, explores Joyce’s deep engagement with musical structure, and his participation in the growing modernist discourse surrounding 19th-century musical forms.

Michelle Witen examines Joyce’s claim of having structured the “Sirens” episode of his masterpiece, Ulysses, as a fuga per canonem, and his changing musical project from his early works, such as Dubliners and A Portrait of the Artist as a Young Man.

Informed by a deep understanding of music theory and history, the book goes on to consider the “pure music” of Joyce’s final work, Finnegans Wake.

Demonstrating the importance of music to Joyce, this ground-breaking study reveals new depths to this enduring body of work.

Towards a Modernist Condition of Absolute Music – Joyce’s Early Use of Music – Joyce’s fuga per canonem: A Case of Structure – Joyce’s fuga per canonem: A Case of Effect – Voided Fugue in “Circe” – “It’s Pure Music”: Finnegans Wake

Michelle Witen is Postdoctoral Teaching and Research Fellow at the University of Basel, Switzerland.

Out now: Kerouac on Record. A Literary Soundtrack

 

Out now:
Kerouac on Record ◊ A Literary Soundtrack
Edited by Simon Warner and Jim Sampas

Co-edited by Jack Kerouac’s nephew, including pieces written by Kerouac himself as well as interviews from major literary and musical figures including Allen Ginsberg, Lee Konitz and David Amram, Kerouac on Record gives a unique insight into how Kerouac brought his passion for jazz to his full creative output.

Kerouac on Record is the touchstone for the music of Kerouac – Kerouac’s love for music, the depth of its influence on his work, and the influence that his work continues to extend to waves of contemporary musicians, from David Bowie and Janis Joplin to Sonic Youth. It is a book rife with the work of cultural icons, essential for any fan of the Beat Generation and popular music alike.

About Kerouac on Record
He was the leading light of the Beat Generation writers and the most dynamic author of his time, but Jack Kerouac also had a lifelong passion for music, particularly the mid-century jazz of New York City, the development of which he witnessed first-hand during the 1940s with Charlie Parker, Dizzy Gillespie and Thelonious Monk to the fore.

The novelist, most famous for his 1957 book On the Road, admired the sounds of bebop and attempted to bring something of their original energy to his own writing, a torrent of semi-autobiographical stories he published between 1950 and his early death in 1969.

Yet he was also drawn to American popular music of all kinds – from the blues to Broadway ballads – and when he came to record albums under his own name, he married his unique spoken word style with some of the most talented musicians on the scene.

Kerouac’s musical legacy goes well beyond the studio recordings he made himself: his influence infused generations of music makers who followed in his work – from singer-songwriters to rock bands.

Some of the greatest transatlantic names – Bob Dylan and the Grateful Dead, Van Morrison and David Bowie, Janis Joplin and Tom Waits, Sonic Youth and Death Cab for Cutie, and many more – credited Kerouac’s impact on their output.

In Kerouac on Record, we consider how the writer brought his passion for jazz to his prose and poetry, his own record releases, the ways his legacy has been sustained by numerous more recent talents, those rock tributes that have kept his memory alive and some of the scores that have featured in Hollywood adaptations of the adventures he brought to the printed page.

Simon Warner
is a journalist, lecturer and broadcaster who teaches Popular Music Studies at the University of Leeds in the UK. He has, over a number of years, written live reviews and counterculture obituaries for The Guardian and The Independent, and has a particular interest in the relationship between the Beat Generation writers–Jack Kerouac, Allen Ginsberg, William Burroughs and others–and rock culture. His previous books include Rockspeak: The Language of Rock and Pop (1996) and Howl for Now: A Celebration of Allen Ginsberg’s epic protest poem (2005). – Writes: Popular Music, North American Literature – Author of : Kerouac on Record, Text and Drugs and Rock ‘n’ Roll

Jim Sampas
is a music and film producer. His musical works often focuses on major cultural figures such Jack Kerouac (who is his Uncle), The Beatles, Bruce Springsteen, The Smiths, Bob Dylan, and The Rolling Stones. He has persuaded a galaxy of stars to partake of a unique aesthetic marriage, as vintage works are resurrected in contemporary arrangements in projects covered by such major news outlets as People Magazine, NPR, The New York Times, Entertainment Weekly, Rolling Stone, and many others. – Writes: Popular Music, North American Literature – Author of: Kerouac on Record

Following Text and Drugs and Rock ‘n’ Roll: The Beats and Rock Culture (2013), Simon Warner partners with Literary Executor of the Estate of Jack Kerouac, Jim Sampas, to go deeper into his exploration of the connections between the great figures of the Beat generation and the music of the so-called ‘rock era.’ Interspersed with exclusive interviews of the likes of Lee Konitz, Graham Parker, Lester Bangs, and Allen Ginsberg, the twenty chapters are signed by an impressive array of journalists, music industry professionals, rock critics, writers, film makers and academics from all over the world. Addressing such issues as the influence of jazz on Kerouac’s ‘spontaneous prose’ style, the lineage between his ‘Beat bop prosody’ and Patti Smith‘s ‘punk rock poetry,’ or his inspiring ‘the myth of the American road’ in Bruce Springsteen’s lyrics, they shed light on what appears to be a two-way relationship between popular music and the work of the author of On the Road. As Warner puts it: ‘if, for Kerouac, it was jazz that would have the principal impact, then it was rock on which the writer would have the main effect.’” – Olivier Julien, Lecturer in the History and Musicology of Popular Music, Paris-Sorbonne University, France

G. K. Chesterton: The Strange Music

 

The Strange Music

Other loves may sink and settle, other loves may loose and slack,
But I wander like a minstrel with a harp upon his back,
Though the harp be on my bosom, though I finger and I fret,
Still, my hope is all before me : for I cannot play it yet.

In your strings is hid a music that no hand hath e’er let fall,
In your soul is sealed a pleasure that you have not known at all;
Pleasure subtle as your spirit, strange and slender as your frame,
Fiercer than the pain that folds you, softer than your sorrow’s name.

Not as mine, my soul’s annointed, not as mine the rude and light
Easy mirth of many faces, swaggering pride of song and fight;
Something stranger, something sweeter, something waiting you afar,
Secret as your stricken senses, magic as your sorrows are.

But on this, God’s harp supernal, stretched but to be stricken once,
Hoary time is a beginner, Life a bungler, Death a dunce.
But I will not fear to match them—no, by God, I will not fear,
I will learn you, I will play you and the stars stand still to hear.

Thomas Campion: From The Fourth Booke of Ayres

  

From The Fourth Booke of Ayres  -VII-

There is a Garden in her face,
Where Roses and white Lillies grow;
A heav’nly paradice is that place,
Wherein all pleasant fruits doe flow.
There Cherries grow, which none may buy
Till Cherry ripe themselves doe cry.

Those Cherries fayrely doe enclose
Of Orient Pearle a double row,
Which when her lovely laughter showes,
They look like Rose-buds fill’d with snow.
Yet them nor Peere nor Prince can buy,
Till Cherry ripe themselves doe cry.

Her Eyes like Angels watch them still;
Her Browes like bended bowes doe stand,
Threatning with piercing frownes to kill
All that attempt with eye or hand
Those sacred Cherries to come nigh,
Till Cherry ripe themselves doe cry.

Schubert’s Winter Journey. Anatomy of an Obsession by Ian Bostridge

An exploration of the world’s most famous and challenging song cycle, Schubert’s Winter Journey (Winterreise), by a leading interpreter of the work, who teases out the themes—literary, historical, psychological—that weave through the twenty-four songs that make up this legendary masterpiece.

Completed in the last months of the young Schubert’s life, Winterreise has come to be considered the single greatest piece of music in the history of Lieder. Deceptively laconic—these twenty-four short poems set to music for voice and piano are performed uninterrupted in little more than an hour—it nonetheless has an emotional depth and power that no music of its kind has ever equaled.

A young man, rejected by his beloved, leaves the house where he has been living and walks out into snow and darkness. As he wanders away from the village and into the empty countryside, he experiences a cascade of emotions—loss, grief, anger, and acute loneliness, shot through with only fleeting moments of hope—until the landscape he inhabits becomes one of alienation and despair.

Originally intended to be sung to an intimate gathering, performances of Winterreise now pack the greatest concert halls around the world.

Drawing equally on his vast experience performing this work (he has sung it more than one hundred times), on his musical knowledge, and on his training as a scholar, Bostridge teases out the enigmas and subtle meanings of each of the twenty-four lyrics to explore for us the world

Schubert inhabited, his biography and psychological makeup, the historical and political pressures within which he became one of the world’s greatest composers, and the continuing resonances and affinities that our ears still detect today, making Schubert’s wanderer our mirror.

Ian Bostridge performs regularly throughout Europe, North America and the Far East to outstanding critical acclaim. He read Modern History at Oxford and received a D.Phil in 1990. He is the author of Witchcraft and Its Transformations c.1650-c.1750 and A Singer’s Notebook. He is Humanitas Professor of Music at the University of Oxford and a regular contributor to The Guardian and the TLS. He is married to the writer and critic Lucasta Miller. They live in London with their two children.

Wereldberoemd ballet ‘Romeo en Julia’ van Sergei Prokofiev in Nederlandse Theaters

Romeo en Julia van Prokofiev is zonder twijfel één van de hoogtepunten uit de klassiek-romantische ballettraditie.

Met het beroemde verhaal van Shakespeare als basis, schetst deze voorstelling de geschiedenis van een onmogelijke liefde.

Romeo en Julia hebben hun hart aan elkaar verpand, maar omdat hun families al generaties lang ruzie hebben, kan het niks worden tussen de geliefden. Dus als ze trouwplannen maken, wordt het huwelijk aan alle kanten gedwarsboomd, met tragische gevolgen.

In de fantastische muziek van de beroemde componist Prokofiev weerklinken de hartstocht en dramatiek die deze choreografie verbeeldt.

Met dans van wereldniveau brengt het ballet van de Staatsopera van Tatarstan dit ultieme liefdesverhaal in heel Europa met succes tot leven. Hun weelderige kostuums geven de voorstelling kleur en dynamiek. Ook de decors zijn indrukwekkend: die bieden een betoverende achtergrond voor onder meer de uitbundige feesttaferelen in het verhaal en natuurlijk de beroemde balkonscene, die het symbool werd van de romantiek.

De passie van de dansers en de hartverscheurende ontmoetingen tussen de geliefden maken van deze voorstelling een aanrader voor alle generaties met een gevoelig hart.

Daniel Kane: “Do You Have a Band?”. Poetry and Punk Rock in New York City

During the late 1960s, throughout the 1970s, and into the 1980s, New York City poets and musicians played together, published each other, and inspired one another to create groundbreaking art.

In “Do You Have a Band?”, Daniel Kane reads deeply across poetry and punk music to capture this compelling exchange and its challenge to the status of the visionary artist, the cultural capital of poetry, and the lines dividing sung lyric from page-bound poem.

Kane reveals how the new sounds of proto-punk and punk music found their way into the poetry of the 1960s and 1970s downtown scene, enabling writers to develop fresh ideas for their own poetics and performance styles. Likewise, groups like The Fugs and the Velvet Underground drew on writers as varied as William Blake and Delmore Schwartz for their lyrics. Drawing on a range of archival materials and oral interviews, Kane also shows how and why punk musicians drew on and resisted French Symbolist writing, the vatic resonance of the Beat chant, and, most surprisingly and complexly, the New York Schools of poetry. In bringing together the music and writing of Richard Hell, Patti Smith, and Jim Carroll with readings of poetry by Anne Waldman, Eileen Myles, Ted Berrigan, John Giorno, and Dennis Cooper, Kane provides a fascinating history of this crucial period in postwar American culture and the cultural life of New York City.

Daniel Kane is reader in English and American literature at the University of Sussex in Brighton. His books include We Saw the Light: Conversations Between the New American Cinema and Poetry (2009) and All Poets Welcome: The Lower East Side Poetry Scene in the 1960s (2003).
