Ny Poesi: 3am magazine's Maintenant interview series presents New Norwegian Poetry, with Jenny Hval, Endre Ruset, Paal Bjelke Andersen and Audun Mortensen.

A free evening of International poetry and performance from four of the most vibrant and resounding young poetic talents in a grand Scandinavian tradition. Hval, Ruset, Mortensen and Andersen belong to a generation of poets that measure the sophistication of literary poetry with the groundbreaking developments of the avant-garde poetic practise and performance. This reading will feature poets who have already gained prominence for their originality and power, and seemlessly engage the boundaries of what poetry can and should become as we reconfigure poetry as song, as lyric, as art and text.

The event will also see the release of a one off special publication from Knives Forks and Spoons press featuring poetic collaborations between the visiting Norwegian poets and Jeff Hilson, Sean Bonney, Agnes Lehoczky and Sam Riviere.
