Poetry with Prakriti in November

Poets Translating Poets is a two-year-long project initiated in July 2015 by the Goethe-Institut-Mumbai, in collaboration with Literaturwerkstatt Berlin and in Cooperation with Deutsche UNESCO, with an aim to create a platform for poets from South Asia and Germany to translate each other’s works.

Contemporary poetry from Bangladesh, Pakistan, India and Sri Lanka will be translated into German by well-known German poets, while German poetry will be similarly translated into South Asian languages during the course of the project. By bringing together 51 poets including 17 German poets from across 20 languages through literary encounters in several South Asian locations, this project promises to stimulate new literary networks and open new avenues for transcultural understanding. The project will also include readings, book fairs, photo essays and a sound installation in South Asia and Germany, and will culminate in a Poetry festival in Mumbai and Chennai in November 2016.

@ MCC: The Annual 'Poetry with Prakriti @ MCC' will be held on 29, 30 November & 01 & 02 December 2016 in the Selaiyur Hall Indoor Theatre, between 10 am and 11.30 am.
