About

Oslo international poetry festival is celebrating it´s 10th anniversary from October 8th to October 11th.

This years festival focuses on witness poetry from Germany and Poland to Syria, Iran, Yemen, Ukraine and Guantánamo. We will also consider the potential of physical, psychological and neurological dysfluencies as disrupting societal demands for fluency and coherence. By beginning to understand our bodies in such a way, we can begin to conceive of dysfluency as the 'obstruction of a desire to speak and thus [an] opening into the infinite realm of possible expression. In a time where millions of people all over the world are silenced and Europe experience economical crisis and the worst refugee crisis in Europe since the World War II, we need a true language of ”the other. Welcome to four days of readings, performances, panel debates, poetry films and concerts with some of the most interesting Norwegian and international poets and artists in the world today.
