Words on Stage

Best of Spoken Word – with Knackeboul, Patti Basler, Renato Kaiser, Lisa Christ, Jens Nielsen

The evening brings together some of the best Pop poets and Spoken Word performers of the German speaking Area:


Knackeboul is not only an excellent beatboxer and busy rapper, but also a writer with depth, far from cliched phrases. His music is full of energy and goes straight to the legs. No wonder he is considered the most gifted freestyle rapper in Switzerland. Also on board is his notorious loop device called Gudrun.


Patti Basler is a stage poet and cabaret artist. She impresses with an incredible stage presence, witty lyrics and stunning eloquence. She is cutting, down to earth and brutally good. She is the best thing that can happen to the audience.


Renato Kaiser is a swiss champion (Winterthur, 2012) and one of the best-known exponents of the German-speaking Poetry Slam scene. He has a fine sense of comedy, language and timing; his intelligent mix of satire, spoken word and comedy is equally stimulating for heart and brain, and above all it is an attack on the laugh muscles.


Lisa Christ is U20 Swiss Champion in Poetry Slam and a virtuoso spoken word author. Her lyrics deal with everyday topics, life as a woman and self-knowledge, presented with rousing intensity and subtle humor.

Jens Nielsen actually wanted to be born elsewhere in 1970, but was born in 1966 in Aarau. During drama school in Zurich he began to write. Lives today as a playwright, actor, speaker, performer, author. Since then legendary for his performances and his short stories: wonderfully absurd and pithy profound.
