Elizabeth Torres (Madam Neverstop) is a poet, multimedia artist, translator and speaker. Her work intertwines poetry, visuals and soundscapes, language and performance, combining visions and concepts across various art forms and media. Elizabeth is a prolific author of over 20 poetry books published in various languages, most of them which she also illustrated, who has travelled to 30 countries throughout her career as part of cultural events and projects. Additional publications and projects related to her visual art and world threading projects are scheduled for the coming months. Elizabeth’s path as a poet began at an early age, moved to write by the social conflict of her native country, publishing her first books as a child and receiving a national poetry award for Best Book of Poetry of the Year by the Colombian Book Chamber at the age of 8. Soon after, Elizabeth became a political refugee in the United States. Elizabeth now resides in Copenhagen, Denmark, where she directs Red Door Magazine and a gallery under the same name and the art & culture podcast Red Transmissions.
As we move cautiously out of a lock-down situation and consider new ways of delivering live performance, the P&P/Pilsnerpoesi on Monday will be a trial combination of a physical and digital event. The event will be taking place live with a small socially distanced audience in the Kultivera premises in Sweden where the special guest from Copenhagen, the host from Carmarthen and various participants from Tranås will all be individually occupying in turn the same sanitised performance space.
