The Sea! The Sea!

The sea has its own language. Sometimes it murmurs softly and sometimes it roars. We stand on the quay and hear it. We fear, admire and understand it. The Sea! The Sea! is inspired by this universal language and captures the murmuring of the sea in poetry.

Poets wander amongst the public during this project in the port of Harlingen. Out of nowhere, they burst into verse. Works by established names like Slauerhoff or Hemingway, or that of a new generation of writers. But always with the sea as roaring centrepiece. The Sea! The Sea! is part of a Language Caravan, the travelling festival of Lân fan taal (land of language).

The Sea! The Sea!

The sea has its own language. Sometimes it murmurs softly and sometimes it roars. We stand on the quay and hear it. We fear, admire and understand it. The Sea! The Sea! is inspired by this universal language and captures the murmuring of the sea in poetry.

Poets wander amongst the public during this project in the port of Harlingen. Out of nowhere, they burst into verse. Works by established names like Slauerhoff or Hemingway, or that of a new generation of writers. But always with the sea as roaring centrepiece. The Sea! The Sea! is part of a Language Caravan, the travelling festival of Lân fan taal (land of language).

Tall Ships Races
The armada of The Tall Ships Races, the world's largest historic sailing race, will finish in Harlingen. The Sea! The Sea! provides an ode to the sea during this major nautical event. The ships play an important role because they form the backdrop for the stories. A number of talented young writers write new stories on board the ships. They continue the ode to the sea. The sea not only plays a major role in our past, but it’s also part of our future.

The caravan travels on
The Sea! The Sea! will also provide a voice to the sea at the Admiralty Days and the Oerol Festival, and fresh stories and art forms will arise with the sea as ancient source of inspiration. The liquid basis for new work and experimentation. The Language Caravan also travels to a programme on Simon Vestdijk and the winners of the Anton Wachter prize, which will be organised in Harlingen.
