Let’s meet about something we love. Word. Those quirky things that come out of your mouth, out of your body like clapping fingers on your keyboard, or a dancing pencil on a piece of paper.
If you not only love books, but are also quite happy with the feeling of coziness and good company, then Wild of Words is for you. Since 2009 we have put the literature on the Danes agenda. With a dedicated team of literature lovers whose only wish is to introduce you and all our other guests to a variety of irresistible events. Not least our annual literature festival in February.
Together we celebrate the writing, the ideas and the good story. All in all, it means a cozy, literary experience for you, who loves nothing more than a festival for the few.
Maybe it’s just because we belong in Aarhus. In the City of Smile. In any case, we dream of doing exactly the festival you would rather not miss. As you will remember with a smile.
This British-run festival celebrates poetry with readings, discussions, workshops, dance and music taking place in a myriad of locations around the lake, both on land and on water. The lake’s seductive and intimate setting attracts poets from the world over, who come to experience and share their work in one of Italy’s most charming locations.
This year, the Poetry International Festival Rotterdam turns 50! The milestone makes it the oldest festival in the city, and one of the oldest in the country, with a wealth of history and highlights. Nobel Prize-winning poets once stood on Poetry’s stages as bright young talents, and the festival is both a shining example for, and founding parent of, poetry festivals worldwide. Poetry International celebrates its golden anniversary with an extra festive edition at de Doelen, which also hosted the debut festival back in 1970.
Trailblazing poets will deliver transformative work thrumming with the now. Unique fusions of poetry by engaging artists from the worlds of music, cinema, and dance amplify the power, the beauty, and the personal impact of poetry, here in the form of an intimate reading or workshop, there as a multidisciplinary theatrical poetry spectacle. Right in the heart of the city, inviting, challenging, unmissable.
