While I was also listening to NY & LA is a dynamic and performative extension of the yearlong series of exhibitions and events Alors que j'écoutais moi aussi […] developed at La Criée centre for contemporary art, Rennes, France, in 2017. This program was conceived and organized by Sophie Kaplan, director of La Criée, in close collaboration with three associated artists: Félicia Atkinson, Julien Bismuth, and Yann Sérandour.

The different components of this project are linked by a common thematic and conceptual concern, that of narrative. What is a narrative in art? How is narrative used as a medium and form in the arts? How does narrative in turn generate different forms of interdisciplinarity and intermediality? American poet and performer David Antin is the figurehead of this ambitious and polyphonic program.This new chapter overseas will see American and French artists, curators, researchers, poets and writers discussing, debating and performing together to explore a common ground : their interest for narrativity, orality and improvisation via poetry, performance and the visual arts.

While I was also listening to NY & LA takes place in Los Angeles at Human Resources on March 22, in New York at Artists Space on March 27 and at the Emily Harvey Foundation on March 30 and March 31.

With: Félicia Atkinson, Morgan Bassichis, Charles Bernstein, Julien Bismuth, Krysten Cunningham, Constance DeJong David Horvitz, Lucy Ives, Svetlana Kitto Wayne Koestenbaum, Jennie Liu, LeRoy Stevens, Sara Magenheimer, Jay Sanders, Yann Sérandour, Ellen Zweig and Lucky Dragons.

A choreographed narration responding to a set of live instructions, a translation of a language and sounds we cannot really write about – but only experience, a series of “automated” books speaking in tongues, a dialogue unfolding with or without words, an thread that is an allegory of narration, linking bodies and stories together, an unexpected and silent presence, reminding us that every story in order to exist, need to be listened to. Performing narrative, deconstructing storytelling; While I was also listening to LA challenges the traditional approach to narration, opening up the horizon of what narrative is or how a story can be told. Featuring Krysten Cunningham, LeRoy Stevens, David Horvitz, Jennie Liu, Félicia Atkinson and Julien Bismuth, Yann Sérandour and Lucky Dragons.

While I was also listening to NY presents performances by Morgan Bassichis, Constance DeJong, Wayne Koestenbaum, and Sara Magenheimer that tackle the genre of the “talk” and the medium of “talking” as occasions for investigations in narrativity and storytelling, the relationship between sound and language, and improvisatory modalities of speech. The evening features a musical and poetic outro by Félicia Atkinson and a silent performance by Yann Sérandour.
