Poetry on fire! 22.11. Poetry on fire! 22.11.

Poets and performers take over the Rotuaari stage on Friday 22.11 from 10 to 11 PM. Chants and flames run wild, while the drum beats a trance-inducing rhythm. This unique show of poetry and fire is brought to you by Slunga & Kaaoskoneisto, J.K. Ihalainen, and the sensational flame group Tulikukka.

Spectators are treated to an unforgettable show with raw energy in a concrete jungle, in the heart of the city, now beating to the rhythm of the shaman's drum. The performance is not suitable for children.

Slunga & Kaaoskoneisto is an ensemble formed during Heli Slunga's time as Oulu's Artist of the Year. The group performs evocative, rich, biting and ruggedly beautiful poetry and songs. Taking part are Eeva-Maria Kauniskangas, multitasker of song, music, and theatre from Oulu, Jaana Seppänen, author-singer from Helsinki, and Heli Slunga, author, performing artist and columnist as well as Oulu Artist of the Year 2013.

Hypnopolitician J. K. Ihalainen has published over 30 works of poetry and performed his poems in several countries. He is also a translator, author of nonfiction, printer, and publisher.
