Darkness Spoken - Literature Visualisation

DARKNESS SPOKEN

Co-creation of the Aya Theare Company (Direction and acting), Aram Zarikian (Sound) and decollage.tv (Vision), comissioned by the Austrian Cultural Forum London.

This audio-visual spoken word performance is based on letters written between poets Paul Celan and Ingeborg Bachmann after WWII. Set in an urgent, vibrant post war cultural landscape, their love affair was a rich, troubled meeting of poetic imaginations.

The production has been performed first at the Southbank Centre London.
