Programmarchiv

Seit 2006 finden in der Lettrétage ca. 120 öffentliche Literaturveranstaltungen jährlich statt – Lesungen, Workshops, Diskussionsrunden, literarische Performances und Formate dazwischen. Bekannte und unbekannte Autor*innen und Künstler*innen verschiedener Sprachen und Nationalitäten sind hier schon aufgetreten.

Seit 2013 liegt der Programmfokus u.a. auf neuen Wegen der literarischen Präsentation und Live-Produktion: Dazu zählen u.a. die internationalen bzw. transnationalen Literaturfestivals „Soundout!“, „¿Comment!“, „Berlinisi“ und „Syn_Energy“, aber auch das viel beachtete Netzwerkprojekt „CROWD“ und multimediale Projekte wie die Reihe „CON_TEXT“ oder das „Poetry Audio Lab“. Eine vollständige Liste der Lettrétage-Projekte finden Sie hier.

Als Ankerinstitution für die freie Literaturszene Berlins stellt die Lettrétage außerdem ihre Räume für Literaturveranstaltungen aller Art zur Verfügung. Zahlreiche freie Veranstalter*innen nutzen unsere Infrastruktur regelmäßig – für Literatur-Workshops, Lesereihen in verschiedenen Sprachen und Buchpräsentationen. Mehr zu den Möglichkeiten der kostenlosen Raumnutzung erfahren Sie hier.

Auf dieser Seite präsentieren wir einen nicht vollständigen Einblick in unser vergangenes Programm.

    Convergence II -  A  Cross-Disciplinary  Exploration  of  Experimental  Arts

    20:00Lettrétage in der Veteranenstraße 21, 10€

    Reading and Performance

    CONVERGENCE is an evening of experimental, multi-sensory performances organized by Kross Collective, which explore dialogues between sound, text, and visuals. For our second event, we are delighted to premiere a new, live A/V performance by vocalist Wilma Sävström and experimental musician Days Like Television. Von Jeglichem Wort- a sound & text project- will present an ambient sound performance of poetry and video. Mire is the dark-ambient drone and atmospheric soundscape project of Andreea Hriscu, and for this evening she will present a sound and art performance.

    Two extended musical sets will follow- Paul Brody’s live electronics & poetry performance will feature the voices of poets that he recorded in the past year. As a trumpeter and improviser, Brody will present his electronic based compositions in a form that is open for his trumpet and acoustic improvisation. Finally, British experimental musician Severin Black will present an improvised clarinet and feedback loop performance to close the evening.

    Immerse yourself within CONVERGENCE 2, as we delve deep into a collective liminal state, and explore the outer reaches of cross-disciplinary experimentation.

    Wilma Sävström (born 2001 in Stockholm, Sweden) is a Berlin-based visual artist focusing on mixed media paintings. By combining oil painting with handicraft, Sävström explores the middle point of two artistic practices and lets yarn and thread abstract or concretize her images. Former founder and member of the Stockholm-based artist collective BNKR (bunker) productions she participated in workshops connecting young artists as well as creating a meeting space for women to share and develop their artistic practices.

    Days Like Television is the solo moniker of Daniel Bryden (born 1997 in Newcastle, UK), an experimental musician and video artist based in Berlin. Using found-sounds, improvised instrumentation, and manipulated samples, Bryden crafts immersive aural landscapes which pulsate with an underlying tension and tactility. Live shows are evocative, expansive, and moving- spanning ambience, improvised noise, music concrète, and a fractured, unhinged electronica. Bryden has presented A/V performances at ICA (London), La Vallée (Brussels), Madame Claude (Berlin), and VEKKS (Vienna).

    For CONVERGENCE, they will present their first live, collaborative AV performance together, ahead of the release of their debut single on Bonambi Records in Summer 2024.

    Paul Brody’s live electronics & poetry performance for Convergence II will feature the voices of poets that he recorded in the past year. Together with trumpet and electronics, one of Brody's main compositional tools has been recording interviews and using the voices as musical instruments. This performance will not only feature whole poems but the voices of the poets cut into rhythmic and tonal fragments.

    This type of composing is often thought of as between sound installation and theater. While his compositions are independent of the poems, Brody thinks of them as musical translations of the poems he's recorded. This crosses paths with an obscure technique of translation poems called homophonic translation, in which the translator translates a poem, not by the meaning of the words, but by the sounds in the poem. As a trumpeter and improviser, Brody will present his electronic based compositions in a form that is open for his trumpet and acoustic improvisation.
