Frej Haar, Charlotte Jansdotter, Ulrika Mohlin, Agneta Wistrand Rosendal, Patricia Thorvalds and Håkan Eklund read their poems live. You will experience meetings between memories of singing in the shower and lurical dreams about strings in the chamber orchestra, between rabbits and high-speed trains, between sexual rights and architecture. Here, you will also hear a lyrical road movie, a journey across Örebro by the poet and conferenceier Michael Horvath.
