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

FAIM! French Online Poetry Festival Image may contain: one or more people, text and closeup

Indefatigable performer/ curator Pauline Cathrinot curated & mc’d a great Online Festival! 
“Impérieuse. Elle grossit, gronde, épaissit. Une extraordinaire FAIM, faimgalle, fringale. Elle se lève, nous dresse. Oui, on a FAIM! de corps proférants, de cous tendus en dynamiques de cordes, de larynx émus et d’amygdales vibrantes, de ce qui lève monte s’accroît quand la chair est parole, et qu’elle se jette sur nous. Qu’on l’attrape, la saisit la gobe. De langue à langue, et par dévorations.” … more from Pauline here

Le Chant de la Sirène Journal   No photo description available.

“Chant de la Sirène began as a weblog in 2007 by Laura Hinton, on the topic of the hybrid literary arts. First focusing on the radical New York poetry & multi-media arts scene through which Hinton had been floating adrift, the original blog came to offer a wider array of poetry book reviews, artist-poet interviews, poet tributes, conference travelogues, memoirs, and guest essays… (more here)

Convergence 5: Apocalypse Now and Then    

By  on July 1, 2020
“The announcement of this issue was circulated some months ago, but these past weeks have reassured the editors of the necessity of an enterprise seeking to draw together the best of contemporary progressive thought in order to provide the intellectual and emotional sustenance we need to survive this enormous contraction, and continue the work of overhauling our society. Although the A-Line was founded two years ago as a response to felt crisis, I believe we’d all agree that our current political order—home and beyond—has reached a not-to-be-doubted inflection point beyond which we can neither see, nor even guess. “Apocalypse Now and Then”—in its varied figurative and referential valence—lends its name to this timely issue that includes  essays, poems, and images taking up the many dimensions  of this national and global emergency— from the COVID-19 pandemic, to climate change, economic disaster, as well as the spectacle of violence and lawlessness at the highest levels of governance that currently defines US society.

Finissage Galerie Simoncini Saturday Nov 25th

Finissage Galerie Simoncini Saturday Nov 25th
Dad with Régine, his assistant, who came to visit my show in France in July 2016

Our 5-week show at la Galerie Simoncini in Luxembourg is coming to an end this weekend and we will have a grand finissage on Saturday Nov 25th with a performance at 4:00 pm.
This great run was deeply saddened by the sudden, though peaceful passing of my beloved 95 years old dad, Jean Peyrafitte, on November 11 2017 (press). We talked on Facetime almost everyday, so he got to follow me everywhere we went. I will miss him immensely and I don’t yet fully realize how much, but one thing he taught me is that the show must go on— gratefully and sans glitch! He had a beautiful sendoff ceremony and it was heart-warming to see the huge crowd who came to pay him their last respects. We are now on our way back to Luxembourg for the finissage.

In October Radio Tele Luxembourg came to tape a show that aired last weekend. Here is the link:

We are looking forward to see you at the finissage or, if coming to Luxembourg is not an option, visit our extensive documentation of the show here .

Opening Weekend at la Galerie Simoncini au Luxembourg

Amazing week (preparing, setting up, installing) and uplifting weekend (painting, reading, performing) at the Simoncini Gallery in Luxembourg. We had a three-day opening party during which we nomadically performed our collaborations moving across the three floors of the exhibition.

At the lower level we have installed a complete set of Pierre Joris’ publications — about 60 books & chapbooks moving between poetry, essays & translations. The earliest publications date from 1969; in 1990 begins the years of our collaborations: it includes art work I created for Pierre’s books & videos (12 are available at the galerie) on Pierre’s life & work.
The readings at that level thus focused on our Domopoetics world. The readings on the 1st floor (or 2nd floor in the US!) focused on my recent books & carnets as exhibited there. The performance on the ground level was dedicated to live Action Paintings — I made 5 this weekend! — with Pierre reading from The Book Of U, his new book of poems published by Editions Simoncini with my translation and illustrations for the limited edition.

On Friday Man’ok performed on bass with us. On Saturday & Sunday Pierre DJ’d sound files by earlier collaborators Holland Hopson & Michael Bisio.

So far this has been a truly superb experience for us and, we hope, for the many visitors, from old friends to the people who came in because they saw the action in progress from the street.

The show will run until November 26 and a few more Actions will occur.

With many thanks to André Simoncini & Ingrid Anders and their incredible team of collaborators who made it possible.

Here is the first batch of documentation organized by sections:
