Brought to you by The Literatti, Echoing The Ghosts confronts characters that have shaped our world/view, dresses them in poetry and makes them dance to music from Nine Inch Nails' instrumental albums Ghosts I & II.
With a cast comprised of slam winners, musical-poets and the odd Poetry Idol champion plus a year spent workshopping since their Def Jam collaboration, Echoing The Ghosts is set reach new frontiers in Auckland performance poetry.
Solo performances confront such characters as The Wright Brothers, Kerouac, Billie Holiday, Hans Christian Anderson, and Lewis Carroll. Three-voice performances play with Te Whiti & Marilyn Munroe, and poems in two voices discuss Huxley, Friedman, Rosa Parks, Da Vinci and Jung. We go partying with Sigmund Freud, cooking with Kate Sheppard, to Family Planning with Ettie Rout and we have coffee with the famous artists of renaissance Florence. There is the melding of song and spoken word, the layering of multiple voices and as always, a constantly changing ride.
Cast: Miriam Barr, Christian Jensen, Daniel Larsen, Sabrina Muck & Anna Kaye Forsyth.
Directed by Miriam Barr - her last stint as creative director.
Co-directed by Christian Jensen - his first stint as creative director.
Supported by First Scene and Metonymy.
