Poetry Night. With Elisabeth Plessen, Nhã Thuyên, Kinga Tóth, Yang Lian

It’s Poetry Night: four international poets read and perform poems in their mother tongues. Multifaceted, polyphonic, loud, and quiet. Actors will perform translations, including some created especially for the evening. The readings are by: Kinga Tóth, Nhã Thuyên, Yang Lian, and Elisabeth Plessen. They rediscover the world in language, penetrate beneath its surface in writing, and create a whirlpool of words.

Read by Frank Arnold.

Hosted by Karolina Golimowska.

The event will be in multiple languages.
