"Poetry is an intuitive perception. The political act is in itself an act of oratory emission, by nomination, things must be named. Words run the world, they emerge from silence and remain the only things able to unite the entire world. Speech has energy, force. Language, in both spoken and written form, is power." Raoul Duguay, singer and poet, philosopher and man of words, political, colourful and enigmatic, narrates through performance peppered with excerpts from interviews. His poems' force and originality stem from the philosophical principles he weaves into them. Never without humour, he speaks at length of the vital role played by words and speech in governing communication, intelligence, and the origin of philosophy.
