Performance poetry -8th of June – Espacio Gallery

Performance poetry organized by Renee Rilexie will explore the hidden depths of layers using spoken word poetry and subtle linguistic techniques to fully explore this topic. Not only is performance poetry enjoyable to listen to but often it has a powerful message and that is just one of the reasons why you should attend this event. Another reason is that it is free, and all the sweetest things in life are always free.

Admission: Free – 3-5pm
