„Geheimniszustand“: a matinee with Tua Forsström and Paul Berf.
Location: Villa Skeppet garden
Tua Forsström (born 1947) is one of the most important poets of Swedish-speaking Finland and a member of the Nobel Committee of the Swedish Academy. She has won all the major poetry prizes in her country and her works have been translated into Danish, German, English, Italian, Finnish, French and Dutch. Paul Berf (born 1963) is an award-winning translator who has translated many of Tua Forsström’s poems into German. He also works with Kjell Westö, Håkan Nesser, Henning Mankell or Karl Ove Knausgård, to name but a few. For our festival, he will present – exclusively for our audience – newly translated poems from Tua Forsström’s latest volumes.
12.00-12.30 Concert by cellist Helen Lindén-Pons in Villa Skeppet’s garden.
Cellist Helen Lindén-Pons (https://www.helenlinden.com) has many connections with Ekenäs. She is related to the famous Finnish-Swedish artist Helene Schjerfbeck, who lived in Ekenäs from 1925-1941. Helen Lindén-Pons is also an impressive painter herself. She plays solo and chamber music and lives – when she is not in southern Finland or travelling – in the southwest of France. She knows how to wander between worlds and will take us on a musical German-Finnish journey from Sibelius to Bach.
