October poetry performance night in the studio with writers Dominique Quélen and Ann Waldman.

A partnership between the longtime franco-american poetry exchange club Double Change and the atelier.





In center, Ann Waldman's cellist and Ann Waldman. On their right, one of the two directors of Double Change, Vincent Brossard introducing Ms. Waldman to the public. On their left, Vincent Broqua, not only the other director, but also Ann Waldman's translator and performance partner.

Vincent Broqua was excellent keeping the pace with Waldman.
