TRANSCENDENTAL JOURNEYS

Keskiviikkona 30.9. klo 20 (CEST)
Live/Zoom/SoMe
Yhteistyössä MAISON DU LIVRE

TRANSPOESIE:n toisessa lukutapahtumassa seurataan kuutta runoilijaa, joiden äänet kutsuvat sinut henkiä herättävälle matkalle. Runoilijat kertovat tarinoita pienistä hetkistä, jotka sijoittuvat urbaaniin sekä maalaismiljööseen. Teokset luetaan videolla niiden alkuperäisellä kielellä. Jokainen videoteos on saatavilla käännettynä.

Alla lisätietoa runoilijoista englanniksi:
