Try-out “Ven Salta”, Wednesday 24th May at 20:00

Wednesday 24 May 2017

In Ven Salta seven contemporary female poets from Lebanon, Syria, Spain and Greece gave inspiration to a new series of 11 pieces for female voice and small ensemble. Besides the differences in religion, language and tradition, the Mediterranean area is a very alive and dynamic region with many cultural similarities. These are strongly represented in the works of all these female poets. In Ven Salta we work with these similarities and differences musically by contrasting and blending them into a very colorful canvas of music.

Ven Salta will be central in the Opening Night of the 48th Poetry International Rotterdam in Stadsschouwburg Rotterdam on the 30th of May. Official premier: 4th June, Ro-Theater Rotterdam

Poems by Hanadi Zarka (Syria), Marga Blanco Samos (Spain), Hanane Aad (Lebanon/Austria), Agni Fournaraki (Greece/NL), Kiki Dimoula (Greece), Mellisanthi (Greece,1910-1991), Maria Polydouri (Greece,1902-1930).
