John Havelda

JOHN HAVELDA returns to THIN AIR with his signature verbal pyrotechnics. Born to Hungarian parents who’d fled to London, and having lived now for two decades in his adopted home of Portugal, Havelda is drawn to the texture of languages, and his work—both written and visual—reflects his multi-lingual experience. His publications include Islands in the Green Sea, a collaboration with painter John Lavelle, and mor, a book of poems and visual art. A poet, playwright, musician, visual artist, curator, critic, and teacher, Havelda lives in Porto, Portugal, with his wife, actor-singer Ligia Rocque.
