After the success of the first edition, it goes into the second round with a top-class program. A cultural experience for all the senses!
The gifted storyteller Arno Camenisch is one of Switzerland's most popular authors. Poet Simone Lappert and bassist Martina Berther create literary soundscapes, and to kick things off, three young poetry slammers read their amusing texts.
Camenisch is one of the best-known and most sought-after Swiss authors. The versatile Graubünden native has won several awards and fills large halls with his readings. For his current novel 'Der Schatten über dem Dorf' (The Shadow over the Village) he received the Bernese Literature Prize in 2021. His stage presence and popularity, which he combines with outstanding literary quality, make him the perfect main act for the second Literature Open Air.
With her debut novel 'Wurfschatten' (2014), Simone Lappert was shortlisted for the ZDF-aspekte Prize, and her second book release 'Der Sprung', published in 2019, was nominated for the Swiss Book Prize. Lappert's poetry is also not written for a niche audience, but convinces especially a younger audience with its clear reference to the present and its captivating language. At the Literatur Open Air, Simone Lappert will be congenially accompanied by bassist Martina Berther. Together, the two artists create symbiotic worlds of sound.
The Literatur Open Air kicks off with a performance by three young poetry slammers. Their texts offer a relaxed, varied introduction to the evening that will appeal to young and old alike.
