This weeks guest poet is Harry Zevenbergen.
Harry Zevenbergen is the city poet of Den Haag. In his work, political satire, sharp observation, a heartfelt tear and hilaric absurdism are alternated. In the past ten years Harry has delivered about 800 performances, including over 100 performances in Belgium, England, Ireland and Scotland. His work has been published in several anthologies, magazines, newspapers and in 2004 his first major collection Punk in Rhenen was published. In September 2007 the Nepalese/Indian magazine Pratik published an anthology of contemporary Dutch poetry, edited by Harry, with the support of the Dutch Translation fund.
As a poet Harry works both solo, as a duo with fellow poet Diann van Faassen and also in the poetry pop-group D.O.M., a group that combines multi-vocal poetry performance with pop, folk and electromusic. In 2003 D.O.M. produced the Wintergarden (Nijmegen) City. City is the story of a big city, with a series of poems forming one story. On stage the performance is supported by a film. City was to be seen on several major festivals in the Netherlands. In April 2007 Harry was officially announced as the first official City poet of Den Haag.
