Ghérasim Luca (Bucarest, 1913 – Paris, 1994) was a Romanian-Jewish poet, co-founder and theorist of the Romanian Surrealist artists group. Harassed in his country, after World War II and a local exile he finally moved to Paris through Israel in 1952. His work on French language - characterized by the stammering effects described by Gilles Deleuze - attains its highest degree of expression during the public reading of his writings thanks to the whole-body work. Théâtre de bouche, recorded on 21 February 1984 at Studio Sofreson by Rémi Goux and originally appeared as a cassette included in a special book edition published in 1984 by Criapl'e (Le Soleil Noir), highlights all axiomatic human torments. This edition, second volume in a series of sound poetry releases coordinated by Luca Garino, comes in a deluxe edition featuring the complete recording of the entire text by the author, and the reproduction of a drypoint drawing by Micheline Catty which was originally included in the limited book edition.

"Ghérasim Luca was the man who relentlessly pushed language toward its limits, which he transmuted from a mere instrument of representation into an extreme style of intensities. Luca knew how to stammer not just words, but language itself." Gilles Deleuze
