On February 7, 2009, Poètes publics will be in concert at La Sala Rossa in Montréal for the Festival Voix d’Amériques. A shape-shifting ensemble that unites dozens of poets, performers and musicians with a desire to work and explore together in an improvisational context, Poètes publics will feature for this occasion musicians Bernard Falaise, Diane Labrosse, Martin Tétreault, Michel F Côté and Guido del Fabbro, rapper-improviser Khyro and poet-performers Catherine Lalonde, Renée Gagnon, Danny Plourde, Geneviève Blais and D. Kimm. Also, on February 13, Frank Martel and Nathalie Derome will be featured at the Cabaret DADA Surréaliste, the festival’s closing night concert.
Following the release of Le Silence des hommes D. Kimm has created a concert that is as intense, poetic and moving as the album. The texts are delivered, whispered, accentuated and sung by D. Kimm’s hoarse and fragile voice along the music of Bernard Falaise, Fred Boudreault and Alexis Martin. You might also find Michel Faubert or André Duchesne singing their songs.
