Event 51

EUNIC Spain in Plaza San Martín

LISTEN TO EUROPE. READINGS IN THE “PLAZA”

– Venue: Plaza San Martín

Let us celebrate Europe as a place of coexistence and a home, celebrate its cultures and language differences, celebrate that we are here and now. Let's celebrate. Plaza San Martín de Segovia is the perfect venue, a square that will become the nerve centre of a spectacular fiesta on the 21st. Please come at 8pm to join and add your voices to those of very diverse European authors: some already superstars, others on the way to becoming so. Authorities and institutional representatives will also participate in this open-air session that promises to leave its mark through the richest and most diverse European readings and sounds. It is about enjoying an unparalleled cultural and linguistic journey that will allow you to hear in Segovia voices from other places, but also give voice to those who normally do not have a voice. Listen to Europe. Join us!

Readings are launched by the Mayor of Segovia, Doña Clara Luquero.

The ceremony is conducted by the writer José Félix Valdivieso, who will introduce each reader in charge of reading a poem or a one-minute text in their native language, which will be immediately translated into Spanish. The participants are, among others: Dorota Masłowska (Poland), Sarah Hall (United Kingdom), Radka Denemarková (Czech Republic), Michael Krüger (Germany), Alexandre Vidal Porto (Brazil),  Boris Izaguirre (Venezuela), Maurizio Amendola (Italy), Paula Caballero (Spain); Lotte Lentes (The Netherlands), Irene de la Torre (Spain), João Valente (Portugal), Lara Carrión (Spain), Livia Franchini (Italy), Catalin Pavel (Romania), Corina Oproae, Rebekka de Wit, (Belgium), Guillermo Briz, Lorenzo de Medici (Italy), Inma Flor (Spain), Raquel Garcia Barobs (Spain), Leons Briedis (Latvia), Dylan Moore (United Kingdom), Charlotte van den Broeck (Belgium), Ben Clark (Spain), Ludovic Assemat y Christina Ward, who will close the reading session.
