Roter Salon. A-B-A-B-A: from hear to here: A film by Clara Jo.

As a continuation of the poetry event “Ishe get ‘um, OK Poetry” held at Jan Meda Field in 2012, members of the Poetic Jazz Group collaborate with Berlin-based poets, artists and musicians in an experimental workshop, the aim of which had been to translate and transcribe contemporary poetry practices back into performance. The film follows this three-day-long workshop and presentation that brought together poets, musicians, artists, and translators from Addis Ababa and Berlin at Roter Salon/Volksbühne in Berlin, 2014.

The event series A-B-A-B-A : from hear to here is a collaboration initiated by Institut für Raumexperimente, Berlin University of the Arts as part of Acting Archives funded by the TURN Fund of the German Federal Cultural Foundation, realized together with Palais Wittgenstein/Roter Salon at Volksbühne Berlin.

Choreographed by Christina Werner and Eric Ellingsen.
