Loud and Quiet: German-Iranian Poets

Three slam poets perform their own works and the texts of imprisoned Iranian writers. Since last fall, Iranians have been protesting all over the country. More than 200 people were executed in the first months of this year alone, and tens of thousands were imprisoned. But they are speaking out through letters and poems from prison. Trough spoken word accompanied by daf and tar music, aspects of pain, longing, hope, and resistance are expressed.
Curated by PEN Berlin.

Moderated by Jayrôme C. Robinet.

The event will be held in German, Farsi, and English.
