Participate in "Berlin Reads" - Prelude to 13th International Literature Festival Berlin (4th Sept.)
Call for the reading performance “berlin reads” as a prelude to the 13th international literature festival berlin on the 4th of September 2013
As a prelude to last year's festival we had thought of something special – the international literature festival berlin (ilb) invited in 2012 people living in Berlin to read a piece of prose or poetry of their choice at their favourite place one hour before the festival. Well over 100 participants – authors, friends of the festival, actors, booksellers, librarians and teachers took part in the first edition by reading in every district of Berlin. This year we call on everyone once again – and expand the time frame of the readings. This year’s great reading performance on September the 4th begins at 6 a.m. and finishes at 5.30 p.m. – half an hour before the opening of the 13th ilb in the Haus der Berliner Festspiele.
The choice of the reading spot is entirely up to you: thus it can take place in an underground or train, on your doorstep, in a public square, in a park, Unter den Linden or in a bookshop. The reading should take between 5 and 15 minutes.
If you want to read in a foreign language – wonderful! Please inform us about the language you will be reading in.
We would be delighted to count you among our participants.
We need - best by August 30th:
the title of the work you will be reading from and the author's name
the exact place of your reading
the exact time of your reading
Two weeks before the festival starts we will announce all the readings on our website and via Facebook.
