7 PM: The word goes around
Four poets at a coffee table. None of them have
noticed the audience. What might they talk about,
and what poems do they read to each other when
they’re alone together?

The feminine gender is undergoing changes, taking

9 PM: Poetry Party and the eighth anniversary of
LiteraturHaus
After three days of hard work, the writers deserve an evening of fun and relaxation. LiteraturHaus also celebrates its eighth anniversary,
and what better way to mark the occasion than
letting the Poetry Festival evolve into a Poetry
Party.

WELCOME TO THREE DAYS OF
POETRY
From the 23rd to the 25th of May, it’s time for this
year’s Copenhagen International Poetry Festival.
During these three days, poetry and the spoken word
take over LiteraturHaus in Nørrebro, as Danish and
foreign poets come together for recitations and exchanges at the biggest poetry festival in Copenhagen.

These poets are not packed into stands at fairs in
great halls. There will be no interviews with famous
authors about their lives and philosophies. Here,
the poetry is king - in intimate settings with space
for immersion, where the atmosphere of the poetry
seeps slowly into the room - or is smashed at your
head like brick. Come and listen to old darlings and
new, blooming writers from Denmark, and not least a
streak of intriguing foreign poets, here for this
very occasion, whom you will likely have no other
chance to meet.

This is what the festival is about: broadening our
horizons with new inspirations and new perspectives.
Copenhagen International Poetry Festival is not just
the familiar and reiterated - it’s a chance to try
something new, the promise of surprise, the unique
and the unexpected.

So come over to LiteraturHaus for three days in May,
be part of the atmosphere, the poetry and the quivering intensity of the word.

PARTICIPANTS:
Alberto Blanco
Highly acclaimed Mexican poet Alberto
Blanco (b. 1951) is considered one of
Latin America’s greatest contemporary
writers. Alongside being a poet, he is
an essayist, a translator and musician.
Blanco has numerous books of poetry as
well as awards and grants in his portfolio. Adding his educational background
in chemistry, philosophy and Asian
studies to his exploration of the interfaces between
verbal, aural and visual poetry, his work holds
great depth and breadth. This is a rare opportunity
to acquaint yourself with an influential voice in new
Mexican poetry.

Aly Stoneman
The poetry of English author, Aly
Stoneman (b. 1975), is concerned with
myths, water, wilderness, journeys
and liberation of the human spirit.
Her poetry often portrays landscapes
where places and elements are imbued
with myth. Her poems might be said to
reflect upon our way of inhabiting the
earth, of interacting with its creatures.
Stoneman published her first collection of poems,
Lost Lands, in 2012. Her work has appeared in a
number of literary journals. She is currently poetry editor at LeftLion Magazine.

Andreas Greve
It may be a sonnet about the paper
towel dispenser on a public toilet
or a poem about the essence of depression. That Andreas Greve (born
1953 in Hamburg, Germany) serves us
- always with a blink of the eye.
It is poetry about life and society, balancing on
the fine line between tragedy and humour. Poetry that
makes us think and laugh. Aside from writing, the
many-faced Andreas Greve also draws comics. He has
studied art education and carpentry. As his poetic
alter ego „Dichter Demel“, Greve will take us with
him on a astonishing journey.

Benny Andersen
Benny Andersen (author, musician,
composer; b. 1929) has had a vast
literary production with approximately 110 publications. Besides
poetry, it covers short stories,
essays and children’s literature.
He is typically associated with
the modernist tendencies of the
sixties. His poems are centred around a sensuous perception of the world depicting concrete
experiences of everyday life. He is likely the
most read Danish poet of the 20th century and is
regarded as a national poet. His latest poetry
books are Kram (2009) and Nu og Da (2011).

8 PM: Home poetry
Why is poetry not recited live in a private home?
Today we do it. The intimate surroundings will
give you an even more personal and close relation
to the poets and to the poems. Only 10 seats in
every home.

8 PM: Poetry films
What is a poetry film? During the last 6-8-10
years, poetry film has become a genre. Maybe you
have never seen a poetry film, but after this
night you will know. Literaturwerkstatt in Berlin
is running the greatest Poetry Film Festival: Zebra. Thomas Zandegiacomo Del Bel from Zebra will
introduce a lovely series of poetry films from
many countries around the world.
10 PM: Meine Heimat
Last year, the Zebra Poetry Film Festival commissioned a poem by Ulrike Almut Sandig (whom you
will know from the 7th Copenhagen International
Poetry Festival, 2012). Ulrike wrote the poem
“Meine Heimat”, which any poetry film maker in the
world was allowed to transform into a poetry film
and show at Zebra last October. Tonight, you will
see a selection of the best “Meine Heimat”-films,
introduced by Thomas Zandegiacomo Del Bel from
Zebra
10 PM: Festival café
A relaxed evening where we come together while
music purifies the mind and the last poems of the
night fade out.

We take a small ocean trip, or rather, a trip
around the Copenhagen harbor, combined with a
little tour around the World Literature, or
rather, poems written by these four poets. Water
rhythm, verse rhythms, sounds, lights, changing
outlook. We depart and end at Havnegade 44.

In the Nordic countries, we are bound together
by our common history. And we have birch trees
and blue eyes. Do the Nordic poets of today write
Nordic poems? Come and listen for yourself at

Ditte Steensballe
Ditte Steensballe (b. 1971) has
published several poetry books
and children’s books, a collection
of short-stories and even a CD:
Tivoli er åbent (2008). Directly
translated: “Tivoli is open”, but idiomatically
“your fly is open”. This attitude is characterizing of Steensballe, and something you find both in
her writing, in her music, and in her involvement
with theatre. It’s also something that makes us
expect her presence and performance at the festival to be quite entertaining.

Eduard Escoffet
Encompassing various forms of
poetry: sound, visual, textual
and performance, Eduard Escoffet
(b. 1979, Barcelona) is an active
representative of the young generation of Catalan poets. He states a desire to
vindicate orality, and thus avoids publishing his
work, focusing instead on sound poetry and live
recitals. Escoffet works with voice, computer,
cassettes and projections. He is the co-founder
of the collective propost.org, organizer of sound
and action events in Spain, and former director
of both PROPOSTA (festival of current poetic
practices in Barcelona) and Barcelona International Poetry Festival.

Germain Droogenbroodt
Belgian Germain Droogenbroodt is an
internationally appreciated multilingual poet, translator, publisher
and promoter. Since 1987, he has been
a resident of Spain. Droogenbroodt has
written eleven poetry books. His poetic
oeuvre is many-sided, spanning topics
such as nature, death and love. His
most popular book is the The Road, a poetic bridge
between the East and the West, which he completed
during a sojourn in India. He is founder and editor of POINT Editions (POetry INTernational) and
organizer of several international poetry festivals in Spain.

Haydar Ergülen
Haydar Ergülen (b. 1956) is one of the
important poets of the recent generation
in contemporary Turkish literature.
From 1979 onwards, his work has been
published in many literary periodicals.
And the list of work is long, including Once a Tailor and 40 Poems and One
(1997), which brought him prestigious
poetry awards. He holds a degree in
Sociology, and has also given lectures on Publications, Advertisement and Turkish Poetry, worked as a
copy-writer and written columns for newspapers. He
currently has a column in Varlýk, the most renowned
Turkish literary periodical.

Julie Sten-Knudsen
In her promising début, Hjem er en
retning, published in 2011, Julie
Sten-Knudsen ponders identity, memory
and home in an atmospheric interplay
between melancholic gravity and airy
self-irony.
Julie Sten-Knudsen was born in 1984
and has studied Literary Composition at the University of Gothenburg.
Apart from her début, Julie Sten-Knudsen’s poems
have been published in the magazines Ord & Bild,
Hvedekorn, and internet magazines Slagtryk, Morgenrøde and Errarrarrea. She has been part of the
poet-collective Koordinat since 2003.

Knud Steffen Nielsen
Danish poet Knud Steffen Nielsen
(b. 1947) debuted in 1980 with
the poetry collection Indskrift.
Since then, the list of his poetry publications has grown long.
The latest is Ordninér nye kroppe
(2011), translating as “Prescribe new bodies”, which has an understated tone
of irony and humour - a tone that characterizes
great parts of his work. Besides being a poet, he
is a painter with several pieces and exhibitions
to show. Knud Steffen Nielsen is deeply engaged
in the literary scene. He is the founder of the
Albertine prize for literature.

Lydia Lockett
Comedienne with soul, freedom fighter
with a microphone, jazz-poet Lydia
Lockett (Canada) presents original
words and kick-ass jazz/R&B/soul music.
Lockett has received several awards
in prestigious artistic competitions,
in spoken word and comedy as well as
in visual arts, for her paintings and
drawings.
Lockett has been published in the anthology, Poets in the Griffintown Cultural Corridor and the
Twigs & Leaves Anthology, Volume III. Lydia’s
chapbook, Soul Sugar, was released in 2010.
Highly dedicated to art, Lockett has founded,
directed and hosted poetry shows, jazz shows and
comedy shows.

Nicolaj Zeuthen
Danish writer Nicolaj Zeuthen
(b. 1977) is recognized for his
bitter-sweet depictions of behavioral patterns and everyday life
through the perspective of the
modern man. His writing contains
themes such as modern family life and the constant
urge to perform in modern society. He combines
social criticism with a rigorous simplicity and
great awareness of language, inspired by his great
idol, Dan Turèll.
Zeuthen is also known for his performances with
the band Skammens Vogn. His latest poetry collection is Frivers fra Howitzvej (2009).

Sissal Kampmann
Sissal Kampmann was born in
1974 in the Faroe Islands, but
now lives in Denmark. In 2011,
she was awarded Klaus Rifbjergs
debutant prize for poetry for her
first collection of poems, Ravnar
á ljóðleysum flogi (“Ravens in Soundless Flight”).
This was the first time the prize was awarded to
a non-Danish poet.
 At the occasion, Kampmann’s
poetry earned a comparison to the uncouth wildness of Ezra Pound’s The Cantos. The follow-up,
Endurtøkur (“Repetitions”) was published in 2012.

Tone Hødnebø
The work of Norwegian poet Tone Hødnebø
(b. 1962) is characterized by a strong
visual concentration and awareness of
the modernist art tradition.
Ever since her debut in 1989, she has
placed herself in the center of contemporary Norwegian poetry with many
powerful releases. Hødnebø has attended
the Writing Academy in Oslo and received several
awards. Her poetry reveals her intimate knowledge
of both literary and philosophical traditions. It
operates within the mystical area between the clear
and what is not yet fixed.
