TÖLLI Elsa

Poems

***

Elsa Tölli on esiintyvä runoilija sekä huikentelija, jolle elämän seikkailut, tärähtänyt glamour ja lava-adrenaliini ovat taiteentekemisen moottoreita. Värikylläisillä keikoillaan Tölli tuo lavalle tunnekuohunsa, anteeksipyytelemättömän läsnäolonsa sekä lennokkaan kirvelevät runopuheensa. Hänen runokokoelmansa Fun Primavera ilmestyi 2020 ja oli historian ensimmäisenä omakustanteena ehdolla Helsingin Sanomien esikoiskirjakilpailussa. ”Runous on todellista yhteiskunnan multaa, josta uusi, vikuroiva ja sanoinkuvaamaton voi versoa eloon.”

(c) Oona Oikkonen

Elsa Tölli is not only a performance poet, but also a whimsical enchanter, fuelling their creative machinery with life adventures and wacky glamour, and stage-induced adrenaline. Tölli takes the stage filled with emotional ruckus presented in their undeniable presence, sharing sharp and snappy poetry in vibrantly colourful performances. Their poetry collection Fun Primavera was released in 2020, and was the first independent collection to be featured in the Helsinki Sanomat competition for first time authors. “Poetry is the true soil of society, from which new indescribable vines can grow.”
