Machet Beatrice
Béatrice (Anne-Marie, Marie-Jeanne) Machet is a French poet whose dance lessons as a child influenced and still influence her writing. As a teen she learned a lot from the Native American point of view about Native American history and Native cultures, until she felt impregnated with them. She was 26 when she met Jean-Hughes Malineau, a Gallimard editor, who encouraged her to begin a career as a poet. From this initial meeting, each published poetry book of hers will testify to an evolution in her writing practice. She was then able to utilize these avenues of publication in order to go further in her commitment with Native American people and made contacts with the contemporary Native authors in order to collaborate and translate their works into French. She is used to collaborating with artists from all kinds of disciplines such as painters, sculptors, musicians, composers, video-makers, dancers and choreographers, and with whom she performs her poetry. She is on editorial boards of french poetry magazines such as Recours au poème, Sur le dos de la tortue, Les cahiers d’Eucharis etc. She has had writer residences, gives many lectures about Native American literature. She leads creative writing workshops, is called for teaching and performing in schools and colleges. She is currently teaching at the University of Macao, as she was granted a one year visiting fellowship position. Her work is translated into Dutch, Romanian, Bulgarian, Spanish, English, Albanian, and Chinese.
