PLU Open Mic featuring Dina Khan
A flattering evening at PLU as we presented Dina Khan’s new short documentary about… us! There were also some important announcements: the Call for Submissions for PLU n°4 has gone out, and we’ll also be going on a Grand Tour of Italy in April!
As for our evening, we heard Yasser‘s French translation of a famous Spanish poet whose name I forgot to write down, Maher, a Syrian poet, lost his on stage virginity, reading Them, The heart of the universe and If I’d only known. Jub (pronounced YUP!) too shed his literary virginity reading City of Flowers, followed by Thomas and Amruta indecently exposing their Couple’s Confessions in public. Moe read some mo’ poems and Steve reluctantly read some more extracts from his upcoming novel Other lives for the desert.
Then we watched a film about us! We’ll post an extract soon!
Round 2 saw: Lorenzo with The King is Bored in Italiano, Stefano shook off his virginity with Two months in Paris, written at Shakespeare’s, Rose telling stories and giving free dating advice to the audience, Shannon got all sexy (again) and Charles, yet another very experience and impressive virgin storyteller, told us L’histoire de l’oiseau. Lauren came back and sang! Alison asked What would be an honest thing? and Lina – OMG yet another virgin – spun sad stories of Love in NY.
A special special guest this week at Open Mic as we premier Dina Khan‘s new documentary film, Paris Lit Up: The Cultural Revolution
Starts Is Here. Shot in 2015 in collaboration with Maria Cristina Giménez Cavallo in Paris, you’ll be seeing lots of familiar PLU faces and getting the inside story on how and why PLU is at the forefront of the next global cultural revolution. Sign up is still open and free to all starting at 20h: join the revolution!
