Klang at Helsinki Book Fair 2016

During the seminar Klang at LillaLuckan on 14 October 2016 the participants wrote texts about their experiences and thoughts and created performances. Two weeks later at the Book Fair in Helsinki on 30 October the participants utilised both their own and each others’ texts.

By exchanging texts and translating them for the group – the event was multilingual and the participants came from half a dozen languages and cultures – the texts were re-created and received a more exciting content and a different shape.

To the texts rhythm and melody were added and the participants also created their own photos. The event became a combination of writing, reading, singing, creating rhythms and visual expressions.

The event was organised by Colorit ry. rf. in cooperation with Lecti Culture Centre, and supported by Oskar Öflund Foundation.oskaroflund_logolecti culture centre en mini
