Krusa Laman - Crusa Lama - Crossing the Seas is the title of the first edition of Winternachten Overseas on Aruba and the Netherlands Antilles.
In April of 2003 twenty poets and writers from Indonesia, Suriname, South Africa, the Netherlands, and the Netherlands Antilles took part in a tour along St Martin, Aruba, Bonaire and Curaçao. Apart from these writers there were also performances by jazz singer Denise Jannah from Suriname/Netherlands. On each of the islands there were performances before a general audience, and school-visits by the authors. Four writers came from 'overseas', the others were from the four islands. The authors read from their work in their own languages. When necessary there were simultaneous projections of translations to the local language(s) of each of the islands.
