Thursday 6 June, 6:00 pm — Saturday 8 June 2013


Jan Pawel Kowalewicz

His stage name is Roman Boryczko. His poetry is interpersonal undress and scenic loneliness dressed in waiter's treadmill. Performed as stories and voices of characters passing through his mind and hardheadedly impersonated. Presented both in homeland (Poland) and abroad, so far within reason. He represented Poland at the European Poetry Slam Championship last year in December in Antwerp, Belgium.

Grzegorz Bruszewski, Estragon (born 1981) – poet, performer, slammer. Has performed all over the place, from Warsaw to Tokyo. Organises and hosts the oldest and longest-running slam poetry contest in Poland. Teaches at creative writing workshops. Included by Życie Warszawy (Warsaw's daily newspaper) among the top 50 cultural activists based in the Polish capital. Co-author of the album "Olbrzym" released by, a label he's also a part of.
