“Poetry Slam”

I went to see a live performance last year at the Murton Festival and was I impressed! It was a lot of fun, light years away from stiff poetry readings with long pathetic silences between words. In those slams there was action. Of course performance poetry cannot be printed on paper or screen, it has to be seen in motion. Therefore this issue comes exclusively in YouTube video format. – Gerald Ganglbauer, Graz
