Three generations, four poets and a drummer are coming together for this evening to join with the audience in mapping the full range of Lithuanian poetry. On loud soles or on quiet ones, from sublime to rowdy, from subtly melodic to poetically rhythmic, they will be showing us the inner and external changes, reflections and vital colours of their homeland and a poetry whose autonomous language needed to be rediscovered.
