During the programme of Motel Poetry, an online and offline multidisciplinary platform, they bring together established poets to explore the boundaries of storytelling with each other through crossovers between language, music and dance.

Between day and today, Moze Naél manoeuvres past spoken word, poetry, visuals and music. Words that cut deep through layers of skin, sentences that cleave emotions and melodies that take you to places you've never been. Moze Naél finds you between the lines, beyond genres. In previous years, he released, among others, the EP 'Long Emptiness', made the audiovisual project 'Close to the sea, far from home' and created an hour-long audiovisual live show called 'Soul Rest' together with composer Winterdagen, light artist Nick Verstand and three-time world breaking champion Menno van Gorp. Besides being an artist, Moze Naél is also the founder of the online and offline platform Motel Poetry, where he creates a place for artists who are at the intersection of spoken word poetry, music, dance, visual art and light art.
