* or: the new dis/harmonies of an old art in continuous expansion.

The experimental evening of the festival returns with a new selection of sound, visual, performative and intermedia poetry, not-yet-identifiable forms, absolute premieres and works created especially for the night, exploring and celebrating the dynamic range and spectrum of poetry today. The line-up this year features poets and artists from Italy, France, Hungary, Norway, Russia, Ireland, Austria, Romania and the USA.

A cosmic night at Apollo 111, 50 years after Apollo 11, in which we learn new words, play with them and ask why do we live in this special uniVerse, where everything is beautifully balanced for life and poetry to emerge.

Poets and artists: Serena Braida, Iris Colomb, Brandon Downing, Claudiu Komartin, Katalin Ladik, Michael O’Mahony, Ottaras, Robert Prosser and Domnul Valentin

Presenter: Svetlana Cârstean
