Poetry Veranstaltungen beim Goethe-Institut

29 June 2017 | Cultural

Das Goethe-Institut Namibia präsentiert in Zusammenarbeit mit Township Productions die zweite Serie von Veranstaltungen im Rahmen des Literary CrossRoads-Projekts.

Das Projekt bringt afrikanische Schriftsteller zusammen, um über aktuelle relevante Themen und Trends zu diskutieren. Wichtige Teilnehmende dieses Projektes sind Phillippa Yaa de Villiers (Südafrika) und Nesindano Namises (Namibia).

Yaa de Villiers ist Dozentin für kreatives Schreiben an der Wits Universität in Johannesburg und leidenschaftliche Autorin und Performerin. Zudem ist sie Poetin und trat bereits in Europa und Asien auf. Sie arbeitete an einigen afrikanischen Gedichtspublikationen mit, die für andere Teile der Welt übersetzt wurden.

Namises, auch als Nunu bekannt, ist keine Unbekannte für die lokale Bühne. Sie ist Musikerin, Autorin und Poetin und nutzt das Geschichten erzählen für sich selbst als ein Heilmittel und als eine Art, sozialen Wandel zu initiieren. Zudem singt sie für Blend, einem Soul-Duo, das momentan an einem Debütalbum arbeitet.

Der Koordinator dieser Ausgabe von Literary CossRoads, Keamogetsi Joseph Molapong von der Township Productions, ermöglicht folgende Veranstaltungen für die Öffentlichkeit:

• 29. Juni 09:00 Uhr – 13:00 Uhr @ Bibliothek – Poetry Workshop mit Yaa de Villiers, die die Evolution eines Dichters und das falsche zu schreiben untersuchen wird.

• 29. Juni 19:15 Uhr – 21:00 Uhr @ Bibliothek – Eine Poetry Session in Kooperation mit Township Productions

Die Teilnahme ist kostenfrei.
