Driven by an obsession to write about the party and to take account of the lack of vocabulary to describe it, Arnaud Idelon writes somewhere between essay and poetry, the sensitive and the collective, to find and invent the words that are missing and thus speak of the states of the party.

About the author
Arnaud Idelon is an author, critic, curator and programmer.
He lives, works and parties in Paris and elsewhere.
The subject of insomnia by choice and a poetic object, the party has accompanied his artistic forays into writing, radio and performance for nearly ten years, as well as the workspaces he opens up to collaboration and research, seen as an autonomous artistic medium, a fiction shared by the community of a night.
On this theme, he is the author of the fictions Nuits d’Achille, 2019, Contre-Jour, 2020 Tolède, 2021 and the essays Politiques du Dancefloor, 2018.
About dentata Editions
Dentata editions is the fruit of a collective and collaborative effort based on a friendly, militant and artistic exchange between Moroccan illustrator Merieme Mesfioui aka Durgamaya and French-Catalan artist Margot Mourrier Sanyas aka Maggie. They have brought five years of meetings and work to fruition: zine HOSTIS #1 x Crack! Festival, Les Puces de l’Illu – le festival de l’illustration contemporaine, SPIN OFF, rencontre #metoo X #nousaussi, CLASH!…
Editions dentata is committed to producing all its work in several languages, with a particular focus on French and Arabic-language productions.
Through the challenges of translation, but above all through a day-to-day dialogue about their encounters and the differences in their backgrounds and perceptions of xenophobic and feminist issues, the duo hopes to build cross-cultural bridges, with a view to intersectional adelphities and the fight against borders.
Dentata editions publishes poetry, drawings, activist texts and inventive objects for them and the authors they work with.
