A bike without breaks (programme in Dutch)
Location: Leeszaal West, Rotterdam West
Each year Leeszaal West participates in Poetry International's translation project. In previous years Polish and Chinese writers have been selected. This year the choice has been made to translate the work of the Moldovan poet Dumitru Crudu. Under the careful eye of the Romanian Zoë Cochia form Gallery Niffo and Lidia Ioniscus, a volunteer at the Leeszaal, a translation group was formed. Dumitru Crudu has a concrete and perosnal writing style, but how do you translate his melancholic humor? On June 1st he will read from his work and the group will present their translations. Crudu will be interviewed and there will be a show with Romanian music. This programme will be mostly in Dutch.
This event is free, however it is needed to register. Please register via email@example.com before May 31st.
