'Thirteen ways of looking at a blackbird': Festival opening ceremony

There are many ways of looking at poetry. The festival’s opening programme shows that poetry goes beyond language and is also mediated through theatre, film, visual art, music and dance.

The opening ceremony will include performances based on Edgar Lee Masters’ Spoon River Anthology, a preview of Singing Reality, the programme of artists’ films curated by Maria Barnas, and the world premiere of ‘The Arrest’ by Yannis Kyriakides and MAE.
