Description

Jazz is My Religion [FR/EN]

A rare opportunity to engage with the work of Dutch filmmaker Louis van Gasteren. In 1963, Dutch writer and poet Simon Vinkenoog started a Jazz & Poetry night in Sheherazade, a nightclub in Amsterdam, on behalf of his American friends - including Ted Joans - who asked him "Hey man, where can you read Poetry here?” In 1964, van Gasteren directed the film Jazz and Poetry (1964, 14’) in which Ted Joans reads his poetry with jazz musicians Piet Kuiters, Ruud Jacobs, Cees See and Herman Schoonderwalt at Sheherazade. In response to the film, curators from the Marrakech-based collective UNTITLED (Soukaina Aboulaoula & Yvon Langué) will lead an intervention.

Jazz Is My Religion [FR/EN]

Une occasion unique de se plonger dans l’œuvre du cinéaste néerlandais Louis van Gasteren. En 1963, l'écrivain et poète néerlandais Simon Vinkenoog lance une soirée Jazz et Poésie au Sheherazade, un night-club d'Amsterdam, pour ses amis américains, dont Ted Joans, qui lui avaient demandé : « Dis, où est-ce qu’on peut lire de la poésie ici ? » En 1964, van Gasteren réalise le film Jazz and Poetry (1964, 14'), où l'on peut voir Ted Joans lire ses poèmes en compagnie des musiciens de jazz Piet Kuiters, Ruud Jacobs, Cees See et Herman Schoonderwalt au Sheherazade. Les commissaires du collectif UNTITLED (Soukaina Aboulaoula et Yvon Langué), basé à Marrakech, feront une intervention en réponse au film.
