Workshops during French or English lessons: foreign-language poetry on stage


Festival Poets come in the classroom, during two hours they work in pairs with the students on a short poetic Dada performance at the foreign-language lessons.

Students work on a short text and meet internationally renowned poets who regularly travel with their poetry on stage.

Hereby the students explore a foreign language in a very different and more direct way.
