UK premiere. American poet Ron Silliman has emerged as a major figure in international post-avant poetry. Since 1974, Silliman has been working on a single poem, entitled Ketjak. Silliman’s Ketjak project is composed of four works: The Age of Huts, Tjanting, The Alphabet, and Universe. His 1986 anthology In the American Tree remains a primary resource in this literary moment of the Language Poetry movement and the Silliman blog is internationally regarded as the must-read source of world-wide developments in poetry. Supported by German turntablist Claus van Bebber and international guests.
