Poets in Khayamandi

By on 5-17-2013 in News

It was an exciting and emotional experience for local poets to interact with some of the world’s best literary voices during the Dancing in Other Words festival at Spier in Stellenbosch. Local poets who perform regularly at the monthly poetry readings of SlipNet at the AmaZink theatre restaurant and in the InZync amphitheatre were able to interact with and to read their works when the international poets visited the GSDT, from where they also took a walking tour through Khayamandi. The international poets who attended the festival included Joachim Sartorius, Tomaž Šalamun, Ko Un, Carolyn Forché, Yang Lian, Bill Dodd, Breyten Breytenbach, Marlene van Niekerk, Antjie Krog, Petra Müller, David Shulman and Hans van de Waarsenburg.
