Thomas Kling und die lyrischen Schlachten des Ersten Weltkriegs

ArtsOne Lecture Theatre, Queen Mary University of London, Mile End Rd, London E1 4NS

IN CO-OPERATION WITH THE GOETHE-INSTITUT LONDON The two-part performance Poetic Battlefields brings together historical and contemporary perspectives on the poetry of the First World War. In Catastrophe/Forms four speakers enact over 30 poems (1911-1919) from 14 different countries, depicting the turn from preliminary war fever to the shock at the effects of industrialised mass war. The multimedia performance is directed by Johann Reißer and spoken by Iwona Mickiewicz, Carolin Bohn, Julia Trompeter, and Xaver Römer. The duo-performance Kling Sichten, arranged and realised by Trompeter and Römer, illuminates poems by the German poet Thomas Kling (1957-2005) that concern the aftermath and the remembrance of WWI. Mixed-language performance (with translations). Entrance free. In collaboration with the Faculty of Medieval and Modern Languages, University of Oxford; St Hilda’s College, Oxford; New College, Oxford; the Oxford Research Centre in the Humanities.
