Poetry Periscope in Scotland
This year the Czech Centre London will be working with the Edinburgh City of Literature Trust and Piana na Ulici to facilitate the Edinburgh mini-tour of the Poetry Periscope. The bright yellow jukebox made its debut in London at the British Library, part of the European Literature Festival, and will now be coming to Scotland for the first time.
Journey to the Interior
A multi-sensory participatory performance involving food, inspired by George Bellas Greenough, (1778 – 1855), a geologist and a founder of the Geological Society of London, and Jules Verne’s Journey to the Centre of the Earth. Using themes of geology and the uniqueness of the particular London location (Kensal Green cemetery) as the core concept, the performance aims to explore the space beyond the visible, through an intriguing dialogue between sensory impressions and our imagination’s ability to elaborate and construct inner worlds. Every participant will therefore become an explorer along the journey of their own imagination.
