54th Poetry International Festival Rotterdam
HARDOP

HARDOP

Experience the art of declamation as performed by five especially selected artists.

From this year on, Poetry International will dedicate time and space to the lost art of declamation: reading other people’s work out loud, performing in on a stage. It’s a beautiful way of learning how to use the right tone of voice, to take into account rhythm and the use of one’s own body. Let alone a way to build confidence on a stage! Poet Laureate of the Netherlands, Babs Gons, is bringing declamation back to the stage in a major way. During the festival, she will share some very exciting plans with you. Then, we will give you a first taste of what declamation can look like, with five wonderful performers chosen by five poetry organizations from The Netherlands: Poetry Circle Nowhere, Poëziepaleis, Huis van Gedichten, School der Poëzie and, of course, Poetry International.

Line-up:

Babs Gons

Lui Montes

Zulile Blinker
