La Salle des pas perdus (The room of lost steps) was an interdisciplinary and bilingual show featuring the work of four performance poets, D’Kimm, Alexis O’Hara, Michel Vezina and Fortner Anderson. Joining us was dancer Luciane Pinto. Guitarist Bernard Falaise and percussionist Michel F Côté provided the improvised score and in Montreal video artist Brigitte Henry worked with us as VJ.
La Salle des pas perdus (Raum der verlorenen Schritte) premiered in June 2007 at Berlin’s KulturBrauerei as part of the Berlin Poetry Festival, with video images by French VJ Franck Esposito. The show was remounted in Montreal in February 2008 at Ex-Centris as part of the 8th Festival Voix d’Amériques and again in 2010 at the FIMAV with the rapper Khyro replacing Michel Vezina.
