Equinox — the 9th Night of Poetry with Barbara Polla

The Fondation is pleased to welcome the 9th Night of Poetry on Saturday March 21, 2020, from 9 p.m. to 7 a.m. (Sunday).

A poetic night where more than ten Belgian and international readers will read texts, poems, scenarios, songs, performances, notes or even manifests throughout the night. No trace but an exceptional evening to be live in the present moment to celebrate the Spring Equinox, moment of the year when the sun crosses the Earth’s equatorial plane, thus changing the celestial hemisphere.

Equinox: the passage, the opening, the arrival of spring light at the end of the Night, when perceptions change, poetry to share, the beauty of words, in all languages, fatigue, music … tribute to all those who have worked to poetize life – Varlam Chalamov in particular – and joy for all of us who try every day, every Night, to poeticize it again.
