In The Dark & Radio Atlas Present: Words from Inside (St Maur Prison) by René Farabet
Radio Atlas is an English-language home for subtitled audio from around the world. A place to hear inventive documentaries, dramas and works of sound art that have been made in languages you don’t necessarily speak.
In the Dark is a collaboration between new generations of audio producers and radio enthusiasts. Their events lift spoken-word radio out of its traditional settings – like cinema, but without the image.
“What is listening? An intense and respectful way of coming close to the Other”. This event will remember the work of René Farabet (1934 – 2017), a master of the creative audio feature. Just over a year since his death we will celebrate his legacy and the inspiration it gave to many producers around the world with a chance to hear his award-winning documentary Paroles du Dedans (Central de St Maur) / Words from Inside (St Maur Prison). Subtitled especially for this event by Radio Atlas, Paroles du Dedans weaves together audio compositions created by the inmates of St Maur Prison with their reflections on sound and listening while serving long-term sentences.
René Farabet’s partner, creative audio producer Kaye Mortley, will be present at the event for a conversation.
