European Encounters

»Boxgesang« and »Neonpoem«: On the sound of words. Michael Lentz and Søren Ulrik Thomsen

Lyrik Kabinett, Munich
Amalienstraße 83a
6.30 pm

Michael Lentz and Søren Ulrik Thomsen are well-known as poets, but also appear as performers and musicians – the former prominently as sound poet and part of the »Lentz/Winters Revue«, the latter as part of the jazz group »Det Glemte Kvarter«.
Their texts contain a poetic language for the paradoxes of the passages of time as well as for the banality of everyday life: at times funny and grotesque, at times serious and melancholic.
Roland Hoffmann will negotiate the conversation, reading, and performance.
