Poetry is at the heart of this concert in which Joséphine Bacon will take part. Her words will be brought to life by the voice of Inuk soprano Deantha Edmunds, while a work by Simon Bertrand, composed on poems by Paul Auster, will invite us to face the music of the soul.

In collaboration with the Nouvel Ensemble Moderne (NEM) and Land InSights
