Rund um die Burg – our gig

The workshop group presented to a full tent as part of the Rund um die Burg litreading Fest yesterday. The Vienna Poetry Academy had seen to it that pix of our gig in the Queen Club in May were shown on a screen behind us. A surge of adrenaline kept back the stage fright. Lena kept the seven of us in line – we had to cut our work back to 3 minutes each and then read slowly, specially me, reading in English. The audience was attentive and interested, and the applause showed us that our passion and hard work had been appreciated – despite the theme of the brothel demimonde at 11 am on a Saturday morning. We were fired up and really appreciated the on- and offline moral support of our teachers, Augusta and Ernst. (Pix by Sharon.)
