(In person at the Centre Culturel Irlandais) The Waste Land Centenary

Wed December 7 @ 19 h 30 - 21 h 00

The American Library in Paris, the Centre Culturel Irlandais, and the T.S. Eliot Foundation celebrate the centenary of The Waste Land with a live performance of the poem and other works.

Le Centre Culturel Irlandais, in conjunction with the T.S. Eliot Foundation and the American Library in Paris, will welcome Charlotte Rampling, Lambert Wilson, Amira Casar, Bruno Fontaine and Christophe Dilys for a special celebration of the centenary of T.S. Eliot’s modernist masterpiece, The Waste Land. Rampling and Wilson will revive Hope Mirrlees’s 1919 modernist poem entitled Paris, a 600-line journey through the city where Mirrlees lived before and after the Great War. Virginia and Leonard Woolf published the work which was acclaimed, dismissed and then forgotten. In the twenty-first century it has been rediscovered and reassessed as an early modernist masterpiece, anticipating a poem published by the Woolfs a few years later: The Waste Land

During the celebration, Bruno Fontaine will perform music that inspired the rhythms of The Waste Land, as well as music of the era and songs admired by Eliot, in a unique improvisation commissioned especially for the evening. France Musique’s Christophe Dilys will present and contextualize the different parts of this one-off performance.

Important information: This event will happen at the Centre Culturel Irlandais at 5, rue des Irlandais, 75005 Paris.
