Poetry International Festival Rotterdam

With poets and spoken word artists from all over the world and partners from far and near, the festival presents unique poetry performances, theme specials, workshops, interviews and interactive programs. This year we multiply the power of poetry, by combining poetry as you know it with poetry that you would not recognize as such at first glance. Brace yourself for a double dose of poetic genius as we merge the known with the unknown. Come watch the world's best poets as they break the boundaries of traditional literary expression and engage in dialogue with artists from diverse fields such as fashion, comics, therapy, karaoke, philosophy and more. Together with poets and audiences, the 54th Poetry International Festival Rotterdam pushes the boundaries of what poetry can be!
