Today in The Guardian: London prepares for poetry bombing

Rain of Poems over London / bombardeo de poemas sobre Londres

Rain of Poems is planned to take place over London on Tuesday 26th June 2012 at 9pm. One hundred thousand poems printed on bookmarks by over 300 contemporary poets from 204 countries will fall from a helicopter over Jubilee Gardens during Poetry Parnassus as the sun sets.Poetry Parnassus is set to be one of the largest poetry festivals ever staged in the UK bringing together poets and spoken-word artists from all over the world.Rain of Poems, created by Casagrande, sees poems dropped over cities bombed during military confrontations in the past. The bookmarks are released at twilight and printed in two languages with texts written by both Chilean writers and
poets native to the location of the Rain of Poems. It has been held in Berlin, Germany (2010), Warsaw, Poland (2009), Guernica, Spain (2004), Dubrovnik, Croatia (2002), and Santiago, Chile (2001). London is the sixth city to host Rain of Poems. This performance creates an alternative image of the past and is a gesture of remembrance as well as being a metaphor for the survival of cities and people.--------------------------------To find out more information, images and details about this project:
