Featured in TIME OF THE POET REPUBLIC

 

Thank you! Poet Curator Mbizo CHIRASHA for featuring my work in such details on the  TIME OF THE POET REPUBLIC.

“Time of the Legend with Acclaimed Performance Poet Nicole Peyrafitte.

“Performance Poet Nicole Peyrafitte your dub verse is mind raving and lyrical gymnastics scintillates lowspirited readers to resurrect themselves to activity. Your poetry heaves with heart throbbing rhythm, that of a dense canopy of papaya tree dancing on the passing wind and as well dangling with ripe yellow ready to be give us Vitamin C. Your art is mature and provokes  the world to rise  and see dots of darkness in the sun  as such to realize patches of  dirty  on the  undergarments  of the moon .Your philosophy concocted imagery raves and cracks our mental boxes, like how stray tendrils of marijuana smoke spirals into the nostrils of a saint, a nonsmoker and wrecks his brains to speak to himself or herself. Mind boggling. Thus, the power of your voice is extraordinary”….more

The Writing of Carolee Schneemann at The Poetry Project NYC

The Writing of Carolee Schneemann at The Poetry Project NYC

Join us at The Poetry Project, Thursday, October 10 | 8 PM for a celebration of her writing!
With readings by Zohra Atash, Lilah Dougherty, Judy Hussie-TaylorPierre JorisDavid Levi-Strauss, Meredith Monk, Nicole PeyrafitteGeorge QuashaJerome Rothenberg, Cecilia VicuñaAnne Waldman.

Carolee Schneemann was a writer and artist of intimacy — bloody, feline, mortal, ancient, and tender. Her understanding of intimacy or union included the weaving of written and uttered language, movement and gesture, and the visual register of images throughout her art-making practice. And it also extended to the way she lived, in close friendship with many poets, forming community with fellow writers, artists, and makers across a number of scenes, circles, disciplines, challenging and inspiring and turning on her friends and collaborators. In a 1975 letter Carolee Schneemann wrote to a male friend attempting to explain gender and art to her, “I BELONG TO NATURE NOT TO THESE ARTIFACTS YOU CHOOSE. I AM ELECTRICAL VULVIC BOLT IN TIME.” 

Her work — simultaneously provocative, unsettling, defiant, romantic, and magnetic — has often been critically understood through sensuality and the body. While this uncompromising embodiment is crucial, in her writing we find guiding notes and framing toward a more expansive engagement with her project, always moving towards the reckoning pleasure of liberation. The writing, like her work across other mediums, is always intense, precise, rigorous, with her psychic and political senses attuned through her vision to a guiltless, boundless freedom.

Steve Dalachinsky has departed

Steve Dalachinsky has departed

It is impossible to wrap my head around Steve’s departure. I met Steve and Yuko at an Art opening for Mary Beach in the early 2000.  When I permanently moved to NYC in 2007, they were incredibly supportive. They took me around and Steve got me several readings &  introduced me to a lot of great music & musiciens.

When I asked them to be part of my film Thing Fall Where They Lie along with Eric Sarner & Katalin Pataki, they were once again totally supportive. We shot for one week. These two pairs of artists had never met each other and their backgrounds were four different countries and four different mother-tongues. What was supposed to be some sort of historical portrait of Bagnères-de-Luchon, my hometown in the French Pyrenees, became an exercise in poetic drift through their personal  stories. They all fell in love with each other, they shared love for jazz and poetry — their sensitivities coupled with a joyous curiosity took over. For seven days, shooting in cinéma vérité style, I followed them in the once upon a time glamorous spa where we all re-imagined the lives of a famous jazz violinist and of Karl Marx’s grandson, both buried in Bagnères-de-Luchon. 

Steve was inexhaustibly funny, smart, bringing so much to the group dynamic of group — & yes! He was happy for a full week! I personally never saw him so consistently happy for one full week.  I spent countless hours editing the film, and it truly was a joy, I loved looking at Steve on the screen, his soft gaze, his pursing lips, his deambulations….

We have not lost Steve, he departed before us.  Thank you for being you, Steve, and to you Yuko, be strong! We need you! Much much love and we hug you tight.

I am so blessed to have known you, Steve: you enriched and brought much joy to my life. I love you forever.
