JUNE 15th

SIESTA celebrates its third and final Panoramas of Latin American Performative Literature in Berlin 2024, bringing together, for one last time, the emerging voices of three authors: Angélica Freitas opens the night with a vibrating and sharp performance on alopecia, sagging boobs, and menopause, pushing us to talk about how to survive the passage of time in a world made for men. Later, Franco Marcucci invites us to look through a deep cut into bacteria, fungi, & putrefaction, presenting living words that grow into a network of breathing matter. Closing this last Panoramas, Cristian Forte brings us back to the stage with open ears, diving into the sound archives made of found footage-style words-turned-into-poems.

Their works will be translated by Odile Kennel, Monika Raič, and Jordan Lee Schnee, who bring experience and linguistic elasticity to expand languages, exploiting the richness of the texts-performances. Together, this third and final universe of Latin American literature promises an unforgettable dive, inviting you to be bathed in these new horizons and perspectives.

“Panoramas of Latin American Performative Literature in Berlin”

A surrounding wall of images emerges as the new scenarios for the Spanish and Portuguese performative literature. Magnetic figures, like metaphors projected from afar, emanate and invite us into Panoramas -a triptych of scenarios to be discovered individually, yet together.

Structured in three immersive encounters, the Latin American literature in Berlin delves into new depths beyond the surface of a city. In this unique Panoramas presented by SIESTA FESTIVAL, over 20 artists shape new forms to inhabit the literary and cultural space of LETTRÉTAGE in Berlin-Mitte from January to June 2024. Innovative approaches to producing and presenting literature immerses us in an event filled with creative combinations of words, performance, video art, and sound art.

Take a seat, save the dates and jump into the immersive leap of “Panoramas of Latin American Performative Literature in Berlin”.
