 The unique harmonious blend of poetry, music and art enables the audience to enjoy an English poetry performance (with German translations) that is an unforgettable experience. Her characters forage along their life paths, more often than not with the odds set against them, for support, respect, civil rights, love and peace. These desires are held in a flickering universe of hope that tomorrow will be brighter, wiser and full of release.
George Henry and Maroula Blades’ especially composed music, soundscapes and video works together with the original slide art by Peter Blau accompany the spoken word.

Followed by
DJ Insuadelia (dance floor)
