Sauna Session - Vikram Kolmannskog "Poetry is Possible"

Vikram Kolmannskog performs poems from his most recent poetry collection, “Poetry Is Possible” during this Sauna Session in Árdna. Vikram’s poems are coloured by his identity as an Indian-Norwegian, spiritual and gay man. Gaysir, Norway’s biggest LGBT news and social network, described the poetry collection as “dampende lyrikk” (steaming poetry). Signed copies of the book will be for sale during the event.

The reading starts at 7 p.m.
