The invited artists from the Netherlands and Belgium will be playing with the diverse styles and sounds of Dutch and Flemish poetry. Together they have developed an unusual inter-disciplinary performance of music, poetry and video art which will be premièred at the 17th poesiefestival berlin: Songs, grooves and poems (gedachte) – played, read and sung live in front of drawings projected on to the screen. From Folk to Electronic, from abstract to anecdotal, from the rawness of Frisia in the north to the gentle Flemings of the south – we can look forward to a treat of movement and being moved.
