Saturday 11 June: The Body as/ in/ of Poetry

The most beautiful poetry from all over the world about the body

For more and more poets, the body is inextricably linked with their identity, social and political status, life opportunities and hazards, and their joie de vivre. This awareness of the body is the driving force that gives their poetry direction and rhythm, and plays a key role in the content and the physical appearance of their poems. Now that people are more likely to enjoy poetry at readings by the poet, the impact of the body is even greater, underlining the message and strengthening the connection with the audience. The 52nd Poetry International Festival will welcome spoken-word artists, and also dancers, musicians and actors who seek the poetry of the body, and are keen to learn about everything that literally and figuratively moves them.

A full program with readings by all festival poets, fascinating conversations and interviews, poetic films, workshops, performances by Rotterdam poets and late Poetry Night.
