Featuring, Unamunos Quorum, Anna Fern, Jeltje Fanoy, Eddy Burger, Sjaak de Jong, Peter Murphy.

Exploring experimental and soundpoetry as a current practice, with a glance back at the past, and its origins. Revisiting women poets in the Beat Era, recapturing a more essential form of language, before communication became stereotyped into words, when the voice was richer in vibrations, more mightily physical, reconstituting works by Hugo Ball (no recordings exist of the sound poems performed here by a wonderful array of different poets), and many other surprising events.
