Performing at Prakriti Poetry Festival, Chennai, India

I will travel to India on Dec. 1st to perform at Prakriti Poetry Festival in Chennai (Madras) in Southern India. Additionaly I will lecture on Sound Poetry at KM Music Conservatory & Madras Christian College & will be performing in schools. It´s a huge program & I have to say big thanks to Estonian writer Aime Hansen, who suggested me to this festival & to Goethe Institute Chennai for their wonderful support & of course Prakriti Foundation, who made it all possible. I am especially happy that I was able to invite Spoken Word Artist Jesse James Lafleur to be my special guest at the festival. She was living and working in Coimbatore for some months now & just before travelling home to Germany she will visit me in Chennai & we will perform together.
