Ruusu Open Mic is coming, this time fully online. In times like these we want to hold on our monthly traditions, as poetry is a balm for mind. The event will be streamed into facebook event at 5 pm in Helsinki time (UTC+3).
As accustomed this Sunday stage poetry club starts with two invited warm up acts followed with the main event, that is the open mic itself. Our warm-up performers come from outside of Helsinki: Kaisa Kurki from Mikkeli and Mexican Iván Cruz Osorio.
You can join into open mic via email: firstname.lastname@example.org. Just add headline Ruusu Open mic and your name. You will then get instructions to join via Zoom, and all you need is a computer or smartphone with a webcamera and microphone. The open mic slots are 4 min long each and they’re limited to 25. We are happy to welcome international performers, as this is an unique way to do poetry club globally.
Each performer will be carefully listened to and cheered on – especially, if it´s your first time! The open mic slots are 4 min long each and they’re limited to 25. Unfortunately we can’t give you the audience’s applause, so you will get them recorded.
