Just before your holidays, the Kiezpoeten take you on another trip around the world: This special edition is all about discovery: Foreign languages? Check! Travel diaries? Why not! A little look over the edge of your nose? Definitely!
At Schall & Rauch, the artists compete under code names behind a shadow wall - name recognition and appearance take a back seat. Voting is done with separate scores for text and performance. Every month, the organisers Jesko Habert & Clara Schlempp invite a variety of musical guests to enrich the evening with a feature interlude.
The city's most experimental slam unites newcomers and professionals - and only the text and the performance penetrate the shadow wall hanging from the stage of the Fabriktheater. What is so experimental about it? Generally, slam poets are allowed to use props behind the Schall & Rauch shadow wall - that alone invites unexpected artistic experiments. And special editions are added at irregular intervals: Theme slams, booze specials, gambling editions or the infamous erotic edition have given Schall & Rauch a reputation for always serving up artistic novelties. Don't worry: the special editions are of course specially noted here!
