Equinox(s) – poetic platform, 2020/05/07

Poetry as a lockdown art. This is the perfect time to draw from ancient or contemporary texts the gems of our great writers and visual artists. Every Thursday evening, the foundation invites you to discover or rediscover the poems of these explorers of thought, with a selection of readings aloud, in music and in images.

Joins us on our website at 8:30 p.m. to listen to our readers (visual artists, poets, authors, choreographers) and escape from your everyday life thanks to the musicality of the texts.

Poetry is our wind rose, it offers us strength, verticality and resistance to overcome together and each one with us this lockdown to avoid the Coronavirus spreading.

Long live Poetry!
