Come and see: Seven young poets from allover the world enter the stage as modern prophets. They will conclude this Winternight prophesying with a poem assigned by the festival. What kind of future awaits us? Tamiem al-Barghuti (Palestine), Lamis Saidi (Algeria), Violetta Simatupang (Indonesia), Saskia de Jong (Netherlands), Ester Naomi Perquin (Netherlands) and Gabeba Baderoon (South Africa) read and Osama Abdulrasol and Henk de Laat will improvise on the poems on ud and bass. The poets will also read from existing work. Yra van Dijk leads the (English) programme.
