Short reading: five poets

Athena Farrokhzad, Sasja Janssen, Ilya Kaminsky, Aigerim Tazhi & Kim Yideum

At this short reading you will see five poets in one hour: Athena Farrokhzad (Sweden/Iran), Sasja Janssen (Netherlands), Ilya Kaminsky (USA/Ukraine), Aigerim Tazhi (Kazakhstan) and Kim Yideum (South Korea). They will read a selection of their poems: Poetry as the only legacy that really matters, that settles as a secret in the body, that lovingly and optimistically shows the other cheek, poetry about the imperfect body that is sometimes dirty, wet and sticky.

Host: Fiep van Bodegom
