Quatre catastrophes

Louis Dorsène - Quatre catastrophes
A collection of poetic, political and ecological stories to be told aloud, in which the natural elements (the melting ice, the volcanic eruption, the hole in the clouds, or the flood) are the heroes, approaching ecology through its sensitive manifestations.
Born in 1994, Louis Haëntjens (aka Dorsène) performs his poems by combining sound, text and image, convinced that poetry is a monster that takes all forms and devours all audiences. Since 2020, his "Bloom" project, around jellyfish, has been translated into poems published in French-language magazines, residencies, performances, and an Instagram account, @dorscene. He programs performances at the Absence instrumental music festival and offers readings of the texts of some thirty poets with the permanent and disarticulated exhibition l'Anthologie Pneumatique. He is also part of the [cargo] collective, which organizes events where poetry dialogues with electronic music and visual arts.
