Gretchen Slam

In the organizer's words:

The biggest poetry slam in Kreuzberg!

Next to a car repair shop, behind a former gas station you will find the inconspicuous entrance to CLUB GRETCHEN. Here, in one of the most beautiful dance venues in the capital, POETRY SLAM is back the way it was when you had to explain it. Before he moved into theaters and cultural houses of the country as a chic best-of variant. Rough, edgy, in a club atmosphere and always with that certain freak factor!

At the Gretchen Slam, the best poetry slammers in the country compete against the Open List. And open list means something else here: you can only register for a 6-minute slot at the box office. If there are more than 3 registrations, we will draw lots - no matter if you are super famous and want to try out new material or if you have never been on stage before. There's room for quiet lyricism, loud entertainment, angry social criticism & ball-busting comedy. Whether you're the weirdo lyricist next door or the next big thing. Or just want to get something off your chest.

Clear the stage for the Gretchen Slam!
