Tonight, there were poetry and music in a very crowded theatre.
Many people had to stand, some of those outside the entrance.
At first, a capella singers SSSSST.
They were five women, singing in Dutch and English, with flute in one song.
Second were the poems of Jur Oskamp: his own, plus one by Friedrich Hölderlin, both the German original and in Dutch translation.
Then, a choir of twenty five singers, the Hartkoor, with songs in French, German, English, and Italian.
Then, my two poems on a train, and on a window.
After a pause, prose by Ernst Kamphuis.
And songs by Greet Meesters.
Her last song was a Dutch translation of Candy by Iggy Pop and Kate Pierson.
