Rise Up: Poetic Memorial 2021
18.02.202118:00KVS, BrusselKVS BRAZZA
Rise Up stands for the city’s resilience, strengthened by encounters. After a trajectory of pre-workshops in various neighbourhoods, organisations and associations, participants from all sorts of backgrounds unite for a weekend-long multilingual poetry workshop, led this year by slam poetess Gioia Kayaga. The results of the workshops can be witnessed on 18 February in an intimate setting.
Gioia Kayaga – aka Joy – might be a familiar face for KVS audiences after We Orchestrate Words (with the Brussels Jazz Orchestra) or SLOW#04 (with Rojo Cordova). The slam poet has had a fulfilling career thus far. Gioia is also the driving force behind Slameke, an organisation that produces open mics throughout Brussels.
« La poésie, ça ne sort pas de la bouche des poètes. Ça s’en échappe parfois, peut-être, sans faire exprès; ça surgit au hazard; ça voyage et se perd. »
Avertissement – Hybride (2019) / Gioia Kayaga
