Superpowerpoetry is the collected power of Spoken Word heroes. On the way from the head to the sheet of paper a piece of energy is often lost while writing, so that the letter sometimes appears powerless on the paper. But in the basement corridors of the Superpowerhouse, an imaginary word power factory, words are given new dynamics with voices and bodies. The performers fill the energy field with slam poetry, spoken word and hip hop. Deborah Emmanuel, Creatrix and word icon from Singapore, Yunus, rapper with viola, Dean Bowen, a young spoken word artist with a socio-critical sound, and Julian Heun, three-time German-speaking master of poetry slam, present their texts on this evening – whether rhymed or unrhymed, socio-critical or intimate, humorous or close to tears, uncompromising or tender. Here they experiment with lyrical magnetism and recharge their word batteries. Poetry: On.
