The European Camarade
April Saturday 6th at Rich Mix
7.30pm - Free Entry
35-47 Bethnal Green Rd, London E1 6LA, UK
A remarkable event where 34 poets in 17 pairs from 25 countries will present brand new collaborations of literary performance, made especially for the night at Rich Mix, near Brick Lane, London. The grand event of the festival, a celebration of contemporary European poetry and the possibilities of collaboration.
The Camarade is a way to bring together dozens of European poets to London to collaborate, perform and to build connections that will last for decades. The event has become a mainstay of The Enemies Project and is the tradition on which the festival has been founded. Collaboration inculcates not only an open, welcoming atmosphere at live literary events, but inherently inspires innovation in the works being performed.
