Sardam 2016

Writers from Cyprus and abroad share innovative ways of writing and presenting literature, through enjoyable readings / performances and workshops. A common ground is the emphasis on original writing / live reading techniques and the combination of literature with both contemporary and more traditional ways of artistic expression, like Theatre, Technology, Dance, Music / Sound, Slamming / Spoken Word, Visual Arts and so on. Every festival aims at presenting always something new. Last year, the programme included, among others, an interactive literary installation, as well as Sound Poetry.

This year, for the first time, the audience will have the chance to experience the combination of literature and Architecture, Visual Writing, as well as the intermixing of words with wheatpaste and stencil art. This year’s festival also includes selections from the work of two Cypriot Writers (Panos Ioannides, Giorgos Kalozois), as well as a parallel event on the last day of the festival: a one man show by the guest poet-performer Vasilis Amanatides (Greece). This year, the awarded slam poet Sergio Garau (Italy) returns to the festival for an amazing workshop.
