Spoken word as an art form

Sara Nazari is one of the foremost spoken-word artists in Sweden right now and in March she participates in Mariehamn's Literature Days, to discuss spoken word as art and form of expression.

Nazari broke through with the spoken word collective Revolution Poetry when she was 14 years old. She has performed both on television and in large stages with her poetry. She has an impressive list of projects and events she has been a part of. Last year, she wrote the trailer for the European Football Championship. Among other things, she also had time to perform in the performance Poetic (R) Evolution at Berwardhallen in Stockholm, participated in Musikhjälpen and performed at the tribute event Together for a better day in the Avicii Arena.

At this year's literature days, she comes with support from the Nordic Institute on Åland, partly to discuss spoken word as an art and expression form, together with Jonna Ekman, and about the writing process. Sara Nazari will also perform a poem at Friday's inauguration.
