The Surrealist Group in Paris

By | June 13th, 2016|News|0 Comments

Les Fondements de la Mécanique Céleste

The Surrealist Group in Paris has just published the results of a stunning theatrical game played in 2014. Combining characters from their collective mythology with the aleatory and blindfolded methodology of an exquisite corpse, they have collectively composed a piece for the theatre that antagonizes everything we hate about the pretentions of the modern stage:

Think about it: for an admirer of Paracelsus and Tex Avery, what could generally be shittier than spending an evening at the theatre in Paris? … During several weeks in the year 2014, at their weekly meetings, the Surrealists of the Paris Group played at writing a piece of theatre without worrying for a single moment about its general intrigue, nor the psychology of its characters, nor the depths of the prompt box.
-Guy Girard

Billy the Kidd shares the stage with Rrose Sélavy, Juliette, Nicholas Flamel and other beloved superheroes from the surrealist mythos. And the strange title? The name of a popular science book found by chance on the street.

Dear Friends,
We are thrilled to announce the release of our Spring 2016 issue of Peculiar Mormyrid. This is our largest issue to date with contributions from 61 participants across 15 countries around the world. 2016 also marks the 50th anniversary since the death of André Breton. In homage to his memory and the living spirit of revolt that it continues to inspire, we have included a section dedicated especially to him, “Pas Un Cadavre”, which we have also made available as a standalone volume. Surrealist greetings! Happy Friday the 13th!
