Incredible Poetry straight outta Europe tonight (5/28) at Cornelia Street Cafe

Tonight at Cornelia St. Cafe, 6 pm, is Day 2 of the Maelström FiEstival, a travelling global festival of poetry. No poetry? No party!

Last night's event at the Invisible Dog in Brooklyn was inSANEly good, with poets from Belgium, France, Italy, Germany & Canada ready a whole new style of intense sound poetry. Three Rooms Press founder Kat Georges was so impressed(!), and is extremely happy to be hosting tonight's reading.

Tonight's readers include:
Dwayne Morgan
Vincent Tholomé
Antoine Boute
Giulietta Laki
Damien Spleeters
David Giannoni

Since 2007 maelström—a Belgium-based publisher, artist, agent of ideas and propeller of acts—has organized an annual fiEstival of poetry, theater, visual art and music in Brussels and other parts of the world.
They just held 2010's critically acclaimed festivals in Brussels and Paris, and they're headed for Montreal in June.

Doors open at 5:45. Open reading is first, followed by the Maelström magic! If you'd like to participate in the open reading, please arrive early. Admission $7--includes a free drink.

See you tonight!
