Molly Balsby og Duncan Wiese - Poesi på en torsdag
08. October 2020
7500 Holstebro, Denmark
Kr. 80 / 40
Poetry on a Thursday is a regular evening event in Holstebro which gives people the opportunity to meet contemporary Danish poets. These evenings, at which the invited poet reads his or her own poems, happen three times in the spring - February, March and April - and three times in the autumn - September, October and November - on the first Thursday of the month in question.
Poetry on a Thursday usually takes place at the newly restored Knudsen's theatre on Holstebro's central pedestrian precinct. It is organised by Odin Teatret in collaboration with Holstebro Gymnasium and HF (High School), Holstebro Bibliotek (library), Holstebro Musikteatret, Holstebro Education Centre and Holstebro Kunstmuseum (Museum of Art). It enjoys the support of the Municipality of Holstebro, the Danish Arts Council and Literature Centre.
Further information about the poets Molly Balsby and Duncan Wiese will follow soon.
