WHAT'S UP? (26/09/2016) 20:00

Rock concert around the "Beat Generation" exhibition.

The women of the Beat Generation were oustanding personalities, sensitive, tormented, inspired, intelligent and independent, eager for encounters, affairs and exchange. The 50s and 60s were favourable to this: it was an era of mutual curiosity and dialogue. This "rock" project has no other pretence but to give a voice to some of these women. Composer and guitarist Jean-Marc Montera, a specialist of free improvisation and experimentation, presents his original compositions after poems by Anne Waldman, Ruth Weiss, Janine Pommy Vega and Hettie Jones.
