S+ News: An evening of literature in Paris


FICEP – The Forum of Foreign Cultural Institutes in Paris has invited Seymour Projects to participate in their upcoming Nuit de la Littérature !

Save the date: May 30th, 2015

After being held in Saint Germain in 2013 and the Marais last year, this year’s event will take place in our neighborhood around the Canal St. Martin.

This walking tour-style event will feature authors from 18 different countries. Each invited author will be accompanied by an actor or actress and a translator.

On May 30th between the hours of 5pm- 11pm the participating spaces with host a reading/performance every hour on the hour: 5pm, 6pm, 7pm, 8pm, 9pm & 10pm

We will close the SEYMOUR+ space one hour early on that Saturday evening in order to welcome Estonian author Mehis Heinsaar who will present his book:

The Butterfly-Man & Other Stories

Heinsaar’s work, predominantly short stories, oscillates between magical realism and fantasy poetry with a surrealist bent. Heinsaar’s vivid imagination is readily displayed in his stories in which he invents surprising universes with shifting realities. His characters, despite being confronted with the impermanence of their world and even their own bodies, attempt nonetheless to satisfy their desires and survive.

Each hourly 40 minute program will run as follows:

15-20mn – Reading – IN FRENCH

15-20mn – Discussion with the author and his/her accompanying actor/actress.

After each session, visitors will leave the space and move on to discover another author and another space.

We are thrilled to be participating in this wonderful event- a true voyage of discovery that will enable the participating public to explore both the outer landscape of the Canal St. Martin and the inner landscape of each author’s imagination.

This collaboration with FICEP on May 30th, 2015 will mark our second S+ Le Soir event.

Save the date and see you then!
