SAMIRA NEGROUCHE

Samira Negrouche was born in Algiers where she still lives. Author of seven poetry collections and several artists’ books, she is a poet and translator and also a doctor, who has privileged her literary craft over the practice of medicine. Prone to multidisciplinary projects, she has frequently collaborated with visual artists and musicians. Recent collaborations include performances Quai 2I1 with violinist Marianne Piketty and theorbist Bruno Helstroffer and Traces with choreographer Fatou Cissé. Her books include A l’ombre de Grenade (Marty, 2003), Le Jazz des oliviers (Le Tell, 2010), Six arbres de fortune autour de ma baignoire (Mazette, 2017), and Quai 2I1 partition à trois axes (Mazette, 2019). A bilingual book-length collection, The Olive-Trees’ Jazz and Other poems, translated by Marilyn Hacker, has been published by Pleiades Press in February 2020.
