Every time people ask me about what I do in Berlin and I tell them I am a poet, a spoken word performer, they ask me whether I write in English or in German? When I shoot back mentioning English, they ask me again: is there much interest in English-speaking performance poets in this town? My answer to the ignorant is yes, there is!In fact Berlin’s spoken word scene is growing and events are popping up like mushrooms. A poetry and literature lover can trample across Berlin’s scene and never get tired of it. Events dashing the best performers from slam, to spoken word, to poets and novelists are by the dozens and they never stop developing. Berlin’s events are rich in diversity, the performers come from all over the world, and the stages differ in size from self-made wooden crates to theatrically lit and sound equipped, offering the listeners many events, literary festivals, poetry slams in assorted performance styles.
