This 2017 video is called Classical Arabic Poetry From Al-Mutanabbi (English) – على قدر اهل العزم – للمتنبي
On 7 April 2013, there was a poetry and music afternoon.
Part of it was a celebration.
When I entered, Gerdi van der Poel read one of her poems about capitalist society.
After her came Hans Roest. He read his poems in public for the first time ever. One of them was about a tulip.
Then came Roel Weerheijm, born in Middelburg, later in Utrecht.
This is a video about Roel Weerheijm at a poetry slam.
Then, Erwin Mulder from Amsterdam.
Then, Peter Brouwer‘s poems.
Then, poems by A.C.G. Vianen, living in Eindhoven now.
After a pause, Jos van den Broek, presenting his new book.
After Ms Sijpesteijn, Ali Rida Rizekar from Lebanon read an Arabic poem by a Palestinian poet.
Petra Sijpesteijn then translated that poem into Dutch.
Tijs Huys told an Arabic fairy tale.
Rian Evers sang Arabic songs.
Finally, after another pause, Peter Brouwer, yours truly, and the other poets who had already read their poems, had their second chances.
