Marie-Pierre Loiseau “MAPIE”

“MAPIE”

Richès Karayib introduces you to Mapie, whose real name is Marie-Pierre Loiseau, she was born on March 3rd 1982 in Martinique.

She is a senior executive in an public administration and at the same time she is an author and artist which give her the pleasure of sharing her poetry on the SLAM stages of Martinique and on the world scene since 2009.

Mapie introduces us to her very first book:

“Au bout du petit matin… l’Émotion!” (At the end of the morning… The Emotion!)

The summary

“Au bout du petit matin… L’émotion !” (At the end of the morning… The Emotion!) is a sample of Mapie’s inspirations from 2009 to now. Her poetry almost always brings out emotion.

Thus, these are words of Love tranversing all the states of her heart during her life and those of others who have become hers by the magic of poetry:

Happy or unhappy love words,

Militant words shouting at the world’s lack of love,

Words of intimate moments,

Reverberating words by beloved artists,

Words of humanity from one heart on the way to meet another,

Words of hope for better tomorrows…

 
“Au bout du petit matin… l’Émotion!” (At the end of the morning… The Emotion!) Published in March 2020 (available in E.book and paper format)

I wrote this book in response to my audience request who regularly expressed the desire to reread my words at the end of my performances.

I have the utopia of believing that poetry can contribute to the construction of better tomorrows and my life experiences encourage me to cultivate this idea.

I have the utopia of beleiving that poetry can contribute to the construction of better tomorrows.

MARC ALEXANDRE OHO BAMBÉ

CAMEROON

His poetry is powerful, code-free and inspiring.

Its intoxicating rhythm carries messages that echo my hopes for a better tomorrow.

IMANIYÉ DALILA DANIEL

MARTINIQUE

Her way of highlighting our past to question our present is puzzling, inspiring and seductive.

The beauty of his pen sublimates the gait.

STEEVE GADET

MARTINIQUE & GUADELOUPE

The audacity of his writing is seductive.

He dares to address painful and/or taboo themes.

It invites us to reflect on ourselves with a fluid writing, without unnecessary details and yet sometimes so poetic .

My Little Anecdote

 

Visiting an exhibition of painters, I was overcome with great emotion in front of the paintings of one of the artists.

I didn’t know her: MILOU.

Motionless, tears in my eyes in front of her works, she came to me and said:

“Hello Mapie.”

I was surprised to know that she knew me.

I then told her about the effect of her paintings on me.

She said:

“It’s normal, all these paintings have been painted since I came to the slam scenes.

You are the source of inspiration.

These are your words that you see there… ».

We then cried in each other’s arms and I left with one of her paintings.

A beautiful meeting…

I have a dream…

I want to provoke moments of poetry in unlikely places, in the middle of the street for example, without warning…

I had that experience in Côte d’Ivoire during a festival of the arts of speech…

Maybe at home?

And finally….

“Our children will be poetry

Poetry today for tomorrow’s children says yes to life

Our children will be tales

Yesterday’s legend and today’s story

They will be prophecy for the lives to come.”
