Spoken Word – Weronika Lewandowska
“At night the imagination flourishes, in the darkness the body dissipates”
Blots of sound strewn around, mixed with associations and various light sources, will combine several poems into one narrative. This is a return to the art of storytelling, where intangibility is a key factor, events untold through metaphor and the perception of text transformed into sound. Spoken word poetry connects the listener with the performers memory. Hidden within the metaphors are real events, meetings and landscapes that grow in space.
