Inspiring Poetry With Musical Accompaniment
Elsa Boström’s achingly beautiful collection of poetry “On black and white thresholds” (På svartvita trösklar, Protected content being interpreted as a mixed language performance in English, Swedish and Finnish. This is a sensual poetry collection with the blue notes of blues flowing through its three parts.
By offering a “mixed language” performance, we want to show that we live in a European, international and multicultural capital city, and are proud of our “home” languages.
In our reading, the Finnish translations amount to about 15 per cent of the text, with the rest equally divided between English and Swedish.
The poems are interpreted by Mira Berglund-Fitzpatrick, with music by John Millar (multi-instrumentalist) and Anthony Shaw (guitar). Producer Vivi-Ann Hakalax is the glue and driving force of the performance.
