Christian Bök will be making a couple of rare appearances in the UK over the coming week.
First, as part of the Text Festival in Bury, he will be performing at the Met Arts Centre along with Holly Pester, among others; this is on Saturday 30 April. Then, on Tuesday 3 May, he will be at Vibe Live on Brick Lane for the London Word Festival, with Luke Kennard and Maria Fusco. Both shows start at 7.30pm.
Below is a clip of Bök reading an excerpt from his book Eunoia, which consists of five chapters restricting themselves to the use of a single vowel; this is a poem/section from Chapter I (for Dick Higgins).
