KREUZWORT/CROSSWORD Saisonfinale mit DOUGLAS-MOORE, HEROLD, ZEEGEN am 10. Juni

4 Jun

Das Poesiefestival bricht bereits am Freitag über Berlin herein und es ist uns egal. Naja, so halb. Oder eigentlich gar nicht. Zumindest jedoch starten wir den Gegenangriff in Form des Kreuzwort-Saisonfinales. Richtig: Wir haben keine Lust mehr und läuten die Sommerpause ein. Sie dauert solang, wie wir das für richtig empfinden. Isso!

Wir freuen uns auf einen bilateralen Abend mit Ian Douglas-Moore, Tobias Herold und Chloe Zeegen, die uns am 10. Juni im Damensalon in der Reuterstraße 39 beehren werden. Einlass wie gewohnt um 20h, Lesung beginnt pünktlich um 21h. 3€ Eintritt sind ebenso mitzubringen wie ein bisschen Öl für die quietschende Tür (hatte ich erwähnt, dass es wirklich pünktlich losgeht?). Eigentlich sollte ich hier noch mehr schreiben, vielleicht sogar was „Lustiges“ wie sonst auch (?). Sorry, kein Bock – Sommerpause ist notwendig, ihr seht das schon noch ein.

For all you English speaking people out there: Ian Douglas-Moore, Tobias Herold and Chloe Zeegen will be our guests at this season’s last Kreuzwort on 10th June  at Damensalon, Reuterstraße 39 (near Hermannplatz/Schönleinstraße). Entrance at 8pm, reading starts at 9pm sharp. Bring 3€ for us and enough for some beer, wine or Gin Basil Smash (highly recommended!). And don’t forget to tip or hilarity will ensue.

Ian Douglas-Moore lives in Berlin, where he plays music in bands like Church Car and the Sacred Travelers and writes occasionally.

Excerpt from „white, round“:

Look at this thing. Here it is. It’s kind of important I mean I think it might be kind of important so you should look at it. I was on the train and I thought of this thing and I thought you should look at it and I mean. But it’s in my head so I mean, you should look at it though. I’ll try to show it to you. Look. Do you see it? When it was warmer, the weather I mean, not what I want you to see, when the weather was warmer we went swimming in a lake. There are many lakes around here and some of them are very long and narrow. Some of them are round and sometimes we went swimming in one of them. It was warmer but not so warm.

Tobias Herold, *1983, liest aus den Lyrikbänden „Kruste“ und „Ausfahrt“ sowie neue, unveröffentlichte Prosagedichte. Er lebt in Berlin und veranstaltet zusammen mit Alexander Filyuta die Reihe „Lyrik im ausland“.

Ohne Hirn
keine Gespinste, keine
Seele, die man baumeln
lassen könnte, und auch

nicht dieses todschicke
Kostüm aus Nerven,
das du zum Mantel des
Schweigens so gern trägst.

Chloe Zeegen (b. 1980 in the United Kingdom) gave up a successful career in arts management in London to move to Berlin in early 2012 and focus on her work as an artist and writer. Her writing is published online and has recently appeared in the debut issue of STILL magazine for young literature and photography.

I go to a bar on Oranienstraße. There’s some random there and we chat for a bit but pretty soon he’s like just moved here have you? think you’re an artist? it’s people like you who are destroying Berlin you fucking tourist. I laugh in his face give him the finger but I don’t just give him the finger I pretend to run my tongue over it up and down to show him just how much of a creative little bitch I am and that really pisses him off and his friends are like leave it leave it. When I get home my spell check is like wtf babe I can tell you’re trying to say something but I can’t figure out what. I consider uploading my entire fucking life to first-world-problems.com but I don’t because that’s bullshit. I reflect an image in Photoshop and it creates a skull. I Google ‘Facebook Star’ and take a screenshot because the returns are irrelevant. I update my status to find everlasting life and I tell you I mean it and I tell you it’s real.
