Video performance by Québec author Ariane Lessard

In the spring of 2021, Ariane Lessard, a rising voice in Quebec literature, was in a virtual residency at the Hotel des Autrices in Berlin. Ariane Lessard’s writing explores the relationship to place, nature, and society, through ecofeminist, magical, and decolonial angles. For two months, the author worked on the creation of a literary object around the topos of the Hotel. Starting June 5, you can discover Ariane Lessard’s work in a short video performance.


This project is part of the culture program related to Canada’s Guest of Honour presentation at the Frankfurt Book Fair. It is organised by l’Hôtel des Autrices à Berlin and supported by the Québec Government Office in Berlin and the production and event office Rhizome.
