A Tribute to Tomaž Šalamun
at Mini Theatre, Krizevniska 1, Llubljana
»I am the water,« goes one of the lines in Tomaž Šalamun’s cycle »The Circle and the Circle’s Argument«. Another line by Tomaž says: »water is most loving of all.« The common feeling felt by poets and other friends of Tomaž Šalamun all over the world is that on 27h December 2014, when Tomaž left us, an ocean was emptied of water. However, love for his poetry and his person remains strong as ever.
His friends from all over the world would like to pay him a tribute on 3rd February, at an event physically held at the Mini teater theatre (Križevniška 1) in Ljubljana and virtually, through livestreaming, all over the planet.
This will be a marathon reading of Tomaž’s poems and texts dedicated to Tomaž, gathering as many friends, poets, translators, painters, musicians and other artists connected personally or artistically to his work as possible.
