“The choreography…the double scene of writing”

The eighth issue of the electronic magazine “Les Amis de Dionysos” (September 2022), which is directed by the poet and aesthetician Boudjemaa Ashfari, and has in its editorial board the poet and translator Rajaa Talbi, the visual artist and art critic Benyonis Amirouche, and writer and art critic Ahmed Lotfallah; It is a magazine devoted to the affairs of art and thought.
The magazine’s editor, poet Boudjemaa Ashfari, said the following:
“Can the scene be still? The scene is already a movement. And movement is a dance story. The story of the body process. Strike (thin) thin the edge of the knife of life.
It is, originally, also a verb (Verb-Act). Verb because it carries meaning: the dance of the body (shaking and moving to the rhythm of the music); dancing in speech (speaking lightly and softly); he danced in the saddle (raised and lowered); wine dance (spurts); The dance of the heart (agitated and moved)…
And it’s a verb, because the body in it travels towards a scene where the writing doubles as the absence of the absence and of the absence.
As if it were a scene “in which two mammals, a male and a female, confront each other”. Watching this scene provokes in us a state of fascination. A fascination that shakes the body (our body), grazes its skin, and the scene becomes an annihilation for the temptress…”
Creative and intellectual names from Iraq, Lebanon, Egypt, Algeria, Morocco, France, Belgium, Romania, Canada, America… contributed to the writing of the eighth issue, whose chapters were:
