Samuel Vriezen at European Poetry Festival Ireland

The European Camarade is a pioneering literary event celebrating a near dozen of Europe’s most innovative poets in a unique collaborative format and this night lived up to its traditon with five brand new performances, collaborations made for the night between pairs of poets, those visiting from across Europe and those based in Ireland. Each explored the true potential of contemporary poetry, from the visual, sonic, literary, improvised and conceptual, and all while creating new bonds between poets across the European continent.
