Berlin has a thing with former airports. Berlin-Tempelhof Airport was closed in 2008, and 12 years later Berlin-Tegel also had to accept it. And the Kiezpoeten have a thing with poetry slams in unusual places.
They have already played in the Spreepark Berlin, the Teufelsberg, the Gardens of the World... so what could be more obvious than putting poets on a moving stage and letting the audience ride behind the stage on bicycles while using wireless headphones finest slam poetry can be heard.
Born in 2020 as Poetry Slam To Go, the cooperation with silent.move has since developed significantly. And for the first time there is the Slam To Ride. 90 minutes of the best poetry slam entertainment, moderated by Samson, on the disused runways of TEGEL Airport, now called "Tegeler Stadtheide". This is the perfect way to end the summer.
