World Famous Poets and Writers to Recite Their Works in Moscow
November 30, 2016 17:33

International literary festival Spoken Word: Post-Babel Condition (ISWAF) will be held in the framework of the book fair "non/fiction" in Moscow on December 2-4.
The event will take place with assistance of the Swiss Culture Council  "On Helvetius", the French Institute, the Goethe Institute, the Cervantes' Institute, the Greek Cultural Center, the Norwegian Foundation NORLA and the US Speaker program.
Authors and performers from Russia, the USA, France, Germany, Switzerland, Spain, Norway, Colombia and other countries will recite poetry and prose on the stage of the Stanislavsky Electrotheatre in Moscow. Poets and prose writers will convey and express author's reading of their works in person. Among the speakers there will be stars of the speech, scenic, and polymedia genres, namely Ursula Ruker, Pilot Le Hot, Anne Cotten, and others.
The famous writings having turned into spoken words will be amplified with the maximum openness of their authors' human presence, and the stage character adding up to their extreme expressiveness.
"We are going to weave a multilingual verbal canvass, connecting renowned men of letters and young authors. Vibrant literary and theatrical surprises are waiting for the audience. The main goal of the festival is to impart the creative energy of the word masters to the visitors", – the festival co-organizer,  Svyatoslav Gorodetsky pointed out.
"The Spoken Word" is not just a literary genre definition, but also a new format of live literature in Russia.
"We believe that author's recital is capable of animating the space no less than stage plays or music concerts, and we are going to prove it at the Electrotheatre", – Mr. Gorodetsky added.
The festival Spoken Word: Post-Babel Condition opens in the foyer of the Stanislavsky Electrotheatre at 7 pm on December 2. The poetic part of the first two days (December 2 and 3) will be continued with "philosophical stand-up" of young Moscow intellectuals and festival guests on December 4. Afterwards the final session of the poetic slam will crown the festival.
