In Performance

Saturday 10 March, 15:30 - 16:30
The Byre Theatre, Abbey Street - Studio Theatre

From Belgium, New Zealand and Germany, three exciting voices launch out across boundaries

Leave your preconceptions behind when you come to this performance by three poets who take poetry performance in ever new directions. Maud Vanhauwert is a Flemish performance poet who’s been known to combine poetry with magic tricks and video. We can’t promise magic today, but nonetheless, come prepared to be surprised!

Ulrike Almut Sandig and Hinemoana Baker have created a performance which blends languages and artforms, switching between English, Maori and German, poetry and music. Through the interplay of different languages, they unpick and reimagine the opportunities translation presents when brought onto the stage.

Supported by Flanders Literature and the Goethe-Institut
