European Poetry Slam

The “aperitif-Slam”


6.30 pm to 8pm will take place slam performances with :

DAstrugistenDA (Belgium / Russia / UK)
(Poetry happening)

visuelThe international poetic collective “DAstrugistenDA” was formed spontaneously in the Macedonian city of Struga in August of 2005. Peter Waugh (GBR), Philip Meersman (BEL) and Sergey Biryukov (RUS) had a poetic encounter. All three are working in different fields and with experimental forms of poetry – sound, visual, video, etc. Their efforts and styles were rapidly combined and were shown in Struga and other cities of Macedonia during several groundbreaking performances.

Their unique way of collaborating, improvising and performing arrangements of each others poems can be seen as a fresh and new form of collaborative poetry.

Peter Sragher (Romania) + Guest
(performance & lecture)

Peter_Sragher_5_photo AMBpeter sragher has been trying out to figure out where the energy of the words come from. because poetry, alike the movement of the body, of the wind or of an airplane, is an expression of energy that is trying to get its form and direction. on another plane, energy tries to find out a reason for being. words do not exist, but energy does. the pleasure and endeavour to find and make energy my own and the attempt to reach out to other in expressing it, here lies my desire.
