European Poetry Night 2017

Saturday 6 May 2017, 7.30pm | Rich Mix

The Enemies Project presents European Poetry Night : a collaborative celebration of contemporary European experimental and literary poetry. Featuring brand new innovative performance works of poetry from pairs of poets drawn from over a dozen European nations, this event is a unique coming together of some of this generation's brightest talents. The works being performed are written for the night, where over twenty poets will celebrate the potential of collaboration to generate truly innovative poetry and work firmly against the divisive and counter-intuitive idea of a reduced closeness of spirit across the continent.
