POETRY RAIN | LOVE IN POEMS
28 JUL • DOM/SUN• 17h • LARGO DE SÃO GONÇALO
This year, the poetry rain will pay an homage to love in its diversified forms. With poetries by Chico Buarque, Jorge de Sena, Mário de Sá-Carneiro, José Saramago, Sophia de Mello Breyner Andresen, Pablo Neruda, Florbela Espanca, Vinícius de Moraes and the erotic-baroque poetry of Gregório de Matos, the equally erotic poetry of Bocage, the anthropophagic poetry of Oswald de Andrade, the trans-creational poetry of Augusto de Campos and Décio Pignatari, the marginal poetry of Nicolas Behr, and of course, Fernando Pessoa, whom could not be left out, we will write in the skies, verses from different eras, styles and nationalities, placing in evidence this light, beautiful, intense feeling…with all its riddles.
Idealized by the poet, graphic artist and editor, born in the State of Minas Gerais, Guilherme Mansur, the Poetry Rain takes place in Ouro Preto since 1993 and was incorporated to the program of MIMO Festival in 2013. Mansur is the responsible for the curatorship of the texts used in this edition.
