Vera Polozkova

For the first time in Israel, Vera Polozkova will perform her new show, where poetry is supplemented by music and visual elements with extreme precision. The poems included in the new program somehow echo Polozkova’s travels and changes in her life, while still revolving around the same eternal themes — love and fear, money and spiritual wealth, aging and people.

Vera Polozkova is well-known to those interested in Russian poetry. Vera was only 15 when she published her first collection of poems, instantly becoming a sensation in contemporary Russian literature. Nowadays, she continues to be Russia’s most popular young poetess, having published two collections of poems — “Nepoemanie” and “Ostocherchenie” — as well as a book “Photosynthesis” together with photographer Olga Pavolga. Polozkova is a phenomenon of the new generation. She made the audience of social media fall back in love with poetry, and became the flagship of the new wave in literature.
