For the first of the Maintenant interview series readings, this Saturday 3:AM Magazine presents three of the most exciting and acerbic contemporary poets emerging from Romania since the millenium; Elena Vladareanu, Ruxandra Novac and Adrian Urmanov.
Challenging, caustic and resolute, their poetry retains the dark humour so prevalent under dictatorship with the utterly modern vernacular of a generation that has come to fruition post-1989. Performing as part of a national tour, this is a chance to see the brightest young talent from a distinct and vivid European poetical tradition.
The Rich Mix arts centre, London (Shoreditch / Brick Lane)
