Transpoesie 2018 invites Olga Pek to BOZAR

Transpoesie, the International Poetry festival, is organized for the 8th consecutive year in Brussels. Its opening evening takes place on 26th September at BOZAR and the public will have the chance to discover, among other poets counting 24 different languages, countries and regions, Olga Pek, Czech poet and translator. The European Day of Languages is the perfect occasion to open the festival that celebrates the language diversity, multilingual Europe and translations! Watch out for invasion to the public space (look up during your daily commute) and mark three poetry evenings and a conference.

Man is the measure of all things,

all things are the measure of Man.

Plants make up 82% of the body.

Investigations of the unconscious self

keep getting thwarted by dark matter.

(From the cycle Milíčovský háj project – the final phase, translation Tereza NOVICKÁ)


26 September 2018 8pm @Bozar

 with Ann COTTEN [AT], Olga PEK [CZ], Christina HAGEN [DK], María ELOY-GARCÍA [ES] and Simone ATANGANA BEKONO [NL]

The new generation of poets takes to the literary stage with plenty of self-confidence, a great commitment, having cast off any yoke. And also, many of them are women. One year after the #metoo scandal erupted, BOZAR offers five female poets a platform to fight back, through poetry. They will read excerpts from their own work during the international Transpoesie evening, while translations (in Dutch, French and English) are projected on the screen behind them. The second part of the evening will be dedicated to Sylvia Plath (1932 - 1963), one of the most iconic poets of the twentieth century. Her poetry will be presented by the famous Belgian singer DAAN, accompanied by the Brussels-based pianist Grażyna Bienkowski.
