Description

Founded in 2002, the Festival Voix d’Amériques offers up eight days of engaged and effervescent experimentation in the beautiful vibrant city of Montréal. It is now the most important spoken word festival in Canada. The phenomenon of oral literature, which integrates storytelling, poetry in performance and spoken word, is a key component in the cultural vitality of Quebec. For its part, the Festival Voix d’Amériques makes a brilliant and unique addition to this “intervocal network,” and its shows appeal to audiences all ages. While the FVA has its roots in literature and the written word, it is different from other literary festivals in that it is multidisciplinary and welcomes creative freedom, experimentation, risk-taking, as well as emerging artists. At the FVA, audiences see shows, not just readings. The stage is handed over not only to poets, writers, storytellers and spoken word artists, but also to singers and performers — all sharing the same stage, often in different languages, and accompanied by experienced improv musicians. Enhance your creativity and join us for a vivid lesson of culture in the company of great contemporary poets and writers.
