Performance keynote: Sara Rahmeh
Sara Rahmeh is a poet, poetry slammer, improvisation actor and storyteller. Although Sara Rahmeh is a fairly new name to the Danish poetry scene, making her public debut in 2016, she has within a short timeframe established herself as a remarkable talent with a unique voice and original style. Sara Rahmeh writes in both English and Danish, and her writing deals with a broad range of issues, including human relations, gender roles and defining your identity in the crossroad between different cultures. With roots in both Høje Taastrup, located outside Copenhagen, and Syria, Sara Rahmeh uses poetry to overcome cultural borders and explore how the clash of cultures can spark dialogue, laughter and understanding. While dealing with serious issues, there is considerable humor to be found in her work.
