Queen KA

Elkahna Talbi is actress but she made her marks on the poetry slam scene and spoken word scene under the Queen KA pseudonym. In year 2009, she presents a show with her texts and some music under the Slam tent for the Francofolie de Montréal music event. For two times she has been an invited artist for Grand Corps Malade for his Montreal shows. Last spring, accompanied by Blaise-Borböen-Léonard sound conceptor, she’s been able to present, at the Théâtre des Écuries, Délirium, a show made from her poetical texts with a theatrical approach, some sort of long monologue. For the moment, she’s always working with Blaise, on another creation with some new texts and more musical support coming from the add of a new composer. Within her performance, Queen KA wishes to put the theatricality of the poems “up-front” and the poetry of the music.
