Following our first event in London last November, the second edition of the Naviar Haiku Fest will take place in Norwich (UK) on Friday 25th May at The Birdcage. We’ll host a haiku workshop in the afternoon, during which participants will have the chance to learn the basics of this traditional form of Japanese poetry, including its history and rules. They’ll also be encouraged to write their own poems and share them with the rest of the group.
In the evening four artists, members of Naviar’s community working in the field of electronic, ambient and electroacoustic music will be performing live.
The event is curated by Naviar Records and Neil Stringfellow, and supported by the Great Britain Sasakawa Foundation
Haiku Workshop: 3-6 pm (location TBA) – free, booking required
Live Performances: 7-11 pm @ The Birdcage – entry £5

I work in the present moment letting the music flow wherever it wants. My aim is to make music that is strange and experimental yet resonates on a deeper level.”
