Who Writes There So Late...

Who Writes There So Late...

In a pub in Vilnius, two poets, Gabrielė Labanauskaitė of Lithuania and Nora Gomringer of Germany, are bringing works to the stage: Poetry Between Life and Truth. The version of Goethe’s Erlkönig recited over modern beats may, however, have caused some nervous coughs among traditionalists. The German-Lithuanian poetry performance was part of the Goethe-Institut’s programme at the Vilnius book fair.
