You never know what you’re gonna get when you come to our open mic – except for surely being empowered and entertained with the diverse, open-minded talent that shows up.
‚ÄúI have never been to Germany, and saw Leipzig only in photos or in dreams. In this poem, I wanted to depict a Leipzig of the past, a place in a time long gone.‚ÄĚ (1003 Nights literary contest winner – poetry)
IN ONE WEEK! Let’s raise our glasses to friendship, creativity, inclusion, the “imperfections” we embrace. Maybe sing or recite. As always, hanging out and having a good time is the most important part at our Cocktail Open Mic.
“I’m having another sip of tap water. My blindfold mask has fallen, the authors have returned to their word-children and my curiosity has been quenched, as has my quadrilingual —Ā–Ņ—Ä–į–≥–į, Durst, –∂–į–∂–ī–į, thirst.”
Whether someone comes covered in glitter, tries to fit back in clothes from their Goth days in high school, or dresses to impress, we want everyone to bring their talent and come as they see themselves. On Friday, 8 June, at Baileo – with Leipzig Opera singers as headliners.
“If I believe the story or get carried away by the flow of the poem ‚Äď I’ll fall in love at first sight, like nineteen years ago, when I fell in love with Leipzig instantly.” Submissions open from 1 May to 1 August 2018.
