Translation is a journey of adventure full of wonders across the seas of languages. Four courageous poets from Syria and Germany brave the adventure. For three days during the poesiefestival berlin they will be meeting together to translate each others’ poems. The results of this Arabic-German VERSschmuggel / reVERSible will be presented in this evening’s bilingual reading.
