Geletterde Mensen: Mauro Pawlowski en Ramsey Nasr

This literary theatre tour put Mauro on stage in 2009 for the first time not only as musician but also as poet. He read poems from his first book Tonelen Van Kalme Waan and played music accompanying his and Ramsey Nasr's texts. With some additions to the show they toured again in 2013.

Saint Amour

In February 2002, Mauro participated in the annual Saint Amour Festival (Behoud de Begeerte) touring the Cultural Centres of Belgium with fellow musicians, poets and writers. Each evening he played a different set of 3 songs. In 2011, the theme of Saint Amour was Italy, and Mauro joined again, now to read his poetry.


Boest in a nutshell was a dynamic poetry project, a writer's show, a book and a record featuring Antoine Boute, Andy Fierens, Jess De Gruyter, Els Moors, Mauro, Xavier Roelens, Michaël Vandebril, Christophe Vekeman and Stijn Vranken. The record features work from the authors on the A-side and on the B side a remix by Mauro.
