South Pacific Yearning – Badeschiff Wien, 28 March @ 19:30
The Temporary Soundmuseum and wientouristinnen in.form invite you to
“South Pacific“ yearning – poetry reading, visuals, music
Friday, 28 March 2008, 19:30
The poets Augusta Laar (D), Carina Nekolny, Judith Pfeifer, Petra Sturm and special guest wientouristin Sylvia Petter from Australia invite you to an evening of readings with sunset romance kitsch, bits of coral reefs, hammocks swinging under a palmtree logo, underwater worlds and old Hawaiian LPs. The South Pacific with its distant islands has always been a place we’ve yearned for. With its exotic motifs it’s the symbol of a perhaps happier, in any case a more interesting, dream world just beyond the horizon.
dj couture (aka Augusta Laar) dips into the rich contents of the Temporay Soundmuseum to bring you traditional and mixed South Pacific tones and forms from Tahiti to Hawaii, Samoa to Tonga, and show how they are seen in our part of the world – ‘the original and the fake’. South Pacific visuals (slides and film) are by Kalle Laar.
A sly wintry homage to the South Pacific and the longing for a paradise that brought the Bounty sailors to mutiny. Mutiny with us!
An event by the wientouristinnen in.form in cooperation with the Temporary Soundmuseum and the Austrian South Pacfic Society (OSPG).
