Stanford University cordially invites you to “I Say It Burns: Poet / post-rock musician Grzegorz Kwiatkowski in Conversation with Cynthia Haven”. The meeting will be held on Friday, October 8.

Vol. 1 Brooklyn

Witness Trupa Trupa’s postpunk triptych in the video for “Fitzcarraldo”.

The music made by Gdańsk’s Trupa Trupa covers a wide range, both musically and emotionally. “Fitzcarraldo,” from their 2020 EP I’ll Find, is more on the blissed-out side of things, juxtaposing nimble guitar melodies with an airy musical backdrop. The brand-new video (also available below) finds the band crossing the United States, and includes some footage shot at their show at Union Pool.

Poetry and conversation with Grzegorz Kwiatkowski

The Program in Jewish Studies and the Department of English at Johns Hopkins University are pleased to present an afternoon of poetry and conversation with the Polish poet and musician Grzegorz Kwiatkowski, whose poetry (along with the music he performs with his band, Trupa Trupa) address issues of historical memory and forgetting, especially around fascism and the murder of Polish Jews during the Nazi period. In addition to offering a reading of his poems, Kwiatkowski will be joined by two U.S.-based respondents, Zackary Sholem Berger and Karen Underhill, who will engage him in conversation about the state of poetry and the arts in contemporary Poland as well as the political and social role of poetry and popular music more generally.
