“Dichter aan huis”
On September 24, 2011, Rozalie Hirs is giving five lectures (at 13:00, 14:00, 15:00, 16:00 and 17:00) on, and including, poetry, as part of the event Dichter aan huis (“Poet in the house”) in The Hague. During this event, some fifty poets are performing, each in a different living room in The Hague. Hirs is reading in the workshop of sculptor and stone restaurateur Paul van Laere.
Hirs is reading several poems (cycles) and is talking about some digital word toys: the application Stamboom (2006) and the interactive website Geluksbrenger online (2011), which have both been developed in collaboration with visual artist Harm van den Dorpel.
