From March 23 to 26, the TRADUKI network has again prepared a comprehensive program of events. Under the title Not East, not West – the Alchemy of the Balkans, numerous writers from Southeast Europe gave insights into their works and displayed the many facets of the Balkans as a European cultural space. The audience at the traditional Balkan-Nacht in UT Connewitz could hear award-winning writers and poets, telling true stories and legends, some humourous, some melancholic, about revenge, slyness, human kindness, family, remembrance, about forests and rapids.
