Who Wants to Live Forever?
How will they express our (near) future in words or sound? In this literary and musical performance, seven festival authors each present a new text or poem commissioned by Winternachten, with musical contributions by Syrian-born ud player Jaber Fayad. You see and hear Ayelet Gundar-Goshen from Israel, HemelBesem from South Africa, Jennifer Nansubuga Makumbi from Uganda, Arshia Sattar from India, Leni Zumas from the United States and, from The Netherlands, Auke Hulst and Aafke Romeijn. Their inspiration is the festival theme Who Wants to Live Forever? The authors perform in their mother tongue or writing language with simultaneous projection of the English and/or Dutch translations.
