Maren Kames

Poets on Stage

Maren Kames

Poetry reading with Q&A

In her 2019 long poem Luna Luna German poet Maren Kames brought a remarkable and unique voice to the poetry stage. In Luna Luna a first-person voice wonders how it is possible to build a world that honours the truth people need to be themselves. After reading from Luna Luna the poet will talk about her work and her inspiration. This mix of analysis, incantation, hyperironic word play, abundant pop quotations and colourful associations will be a must-see for anyone seeking to get to grips with the elusiveness of existence.
