• MAXIMA POESIA are a group whose raison d’être is to accentuate the living relationship between poetic writing and modern jazz. 

    Using texts from a variety of different styles and highly distinctive authors (amongst them  Arthur Cravan, Joyce Mansour, Jacques Vaché Peter Handke and Boris Vian ), Maxima Poesia seek to: “give the poem back its orality, its voice, its breath, proposing a contemporary Jazz where it can breathe”, in a musical language that combines elements of the Chanson tradition, spoken word and slam.

    They are also a group that includes the harp to ravishing effect.

    As part of a national tour celebrating their latest release Une Ode à la poésie des marges (Production Collectif Ephémère / Distribution DistroKid), we are delighted to welcome this one-of-a-kind ensemble for a concert at the Espace Camac. It promises to be an evening where fusion, alchemy even, of music and poetry creates something rare, intimate and utterly exceptional. 

    As ever, entry to the concert is free, but please make your reservations by completing the form below, or by sending an email to [email protected].
