Daniëlle Zawadi

performing spoken word

Daniëlle Zawadi is mainly known for her spoken word performances, but above all else she’s a prose writer. Her performances are mostly about life in The Netherlands as someone from the ‘second generation’. She won 3rd place at Kunstbende in 2017 and before that, at the age of thirteen she published her first novel Zoiets noemen we ruzie. She appears on wordart stages in The Hague and Rotterdam and has work published in De Optimist and Wintertuin’s Notulen van het Onzichtbare. Her passion for wordart has made her create her own platform: Het Zwarte Schaap – spoken word and poetry with the goal to contribute to the wordart scene in The Hague and to give artists a platform where they can be heard. Since this year Daniëlle is part of the Poetry Circle 010 and she partook in Mensen Zeggen Dingen in Ekko and We The People… in De Melkweg.
