Oriol Sauleda

Free verse poet and rhapsode, a pioneer in sharing live poetry.

© Pere Virgili

Born in Sant Pol de Mar, he creates improvised poetry, in the moment. His inspirations include Maragall’s living word or Cage’s Happy New Ears. You can read his work in El Paller (Vienna, 2018), a collection of poems based on transcripts of different recorded improvisations, or in Llumeneres (Documents Documenta, 2021), a defence of singing and parties, which offers an exquisite exploration of rhythm. You’ll also find him wandering like a minstrel, and he believes the stage is a sacred space. He does not look for existing paths: he invents new ones, like everyone else.
