The spirits visited us during this afternoon at PIP! Were you there too? A literary haunted house in bright daylight, where you could enjoy poetry, literature and music to your heart's content. During this Winternachten event, you saw and heard the complete spectrum of modern, feminist horror, haunted stories and poetry in one Saturday afternoon. You heard poetry by Yentl van Stokkum (from her spooky volume Ik zeg Emily); Corinne Heyrman performed the experience of psychosis via music and text; and Argentinian writer Pola Oloixarac, whose novel Mona delightfully satirizes the literary world, read some wonderfully gruesome literature. The Dutch/Flemish band Vampire Boyfriend joined sweetness and darkness in self-assured, frayed songs.
Ticket: €11, including a spooky cocktail
Or a combination ticket (€17,50) for this event and When did it all go terribly wrong?, the film discussion with Pola Oloixarac.
