Grownups is a poetry & sound performance by Latvian poets Krišjānis Zeļģis and Artūrs Punte. The project is based on the conceptual poetry book „Pieaugušie’“(Grownups) by Krišjānis Zeļģis. On stage the poets’ voice interactively generates and triggers sound elements prepared by Artūrs Punte on modular synthesisers. They aim to find connections between conceptual poetry and sound, and to make the perception deeper by giving poetry additional sonar dimension. Authors are looking for inner rhythm and saturation of the spoken word and create unique soundscapes determined by poetry. 

Grownups performs at the event Poetry Party With The Lyrical Self in the rooms and the courtyard of the culture club Salong on Saturday, May 14th at 7 p.m.
