You are cordially invited to an evening around impossible screenplays tonight at Perdu, Amsterdam, at 20:30 CET. Maud Vanhauwaert and Dick Tuinder introduce films and drawings by Dick Tuinder. Theatertroep interprets two screenplays by Delphine Lecompte and Rozalie Hirs, recently published in an issue of the Flemish Literary Magazine DW B (Dietsche Warande & Belfort) curated by Vanhauwaert around the topic of impossible screenplays. A discussion with Theatertroep, Frank Keizer, Bernhard Christiansen, and Rozalie Hirs concludes the evening.
The ‘screenplay’ by Rozalie Hirs is Atlantis (2015), a new multilingual collage poem, based on her previous poetry, including translations by Kim Andringa, Donald Gardner, Henri Deluy, Diego Puls, and Willem Groenewegen. This poetry cycle was originally written for Hirs’ composition Atlantis ampersand, commissioned by Holland Festival and premiered by Klangforum Wien and Vokalensemble NOVA at Holland Festival during the Urbo Kune event on 6 June 2015.
