Alli Mana Pa K’Eho (I Do Not Have Another Mother)
Saturday 25 February, 19:00
at HTIB 1e Weteringsplantsoen 2 C AMSTERDAM
The members of Alli Mana / Poetry Performance & Theatre
found each other in their love for the power of the words in performance.
In the first production of the Alli Mana theatre company, ten performers share their stories on stage.
In ”Alli Mana Pa K’ Eho” (I Do Not Have Another Mother) in contact with poetry, commemoration and the art of forgetting, ten people (comprising actors and actresses, play writers, musicians and poets)
set a multi-language performance exploring and questioning the boundaries of time, the need of belonging, the beauty of sung and spoken words
– all inspired and driven by a common mission:
to build a bridge.
”Man resembles the place he lives in
Resembles its water, its soil
He resembles its sky in that his tears are blue
The sea in that his glances are rough
Houses, streets and corners
How much he resembles
And the dooryards
(His heart squeezed with a well curb)
And its words”
“The Voice of Blood on my Handkerchief”
Edip Canserver (Turkish poet ~ 1928-1986)
