Rimbaud at the Conrad Festival
Add date: Friday, 10 October 2014
Rimbaud at the Conrad Festival. Music at this year’s Conrad Festival includes the turbulent, intensive and colourful compositions inspired by Arthur Rimbaud’s literary visions performed by three music personalities: Mikołaj Trzaska, Michał Jacaszek and Tomasz Budzyński. The Rimbaud project is a musical response to the French poet’s works, which provoke the artists to search for sonic equivalents of boundless spaces, an intimate whisper, obsessive repetition, and the destructive beating of sea waves. The band will perform at 9 pm on 20 October at the Alchemia Jazz Club.
Literature and art

Franz Kafka’s gloomy visions presented in the form of a comic story, imaginative book illustrations for children, mythic Galicia as a space of intermixing cultures – these are three amazing worlds that can be visited at exhibitions accompanying the 6th Conrad Festival.
