Ruskeat Tytöt Present: Past, Present and Future: An evening of Poetry and Spoken Word

an interweaving mix of reflection, contemplation, observation, fear and anticipation. This three-part motif allows and encourages artists to consider the past, ponder their current whereabouts and envisage the future.

The first part of our evening will feature readings from 3 Helsinki Area youth poets Saamia Mohamed, Acquelline Kingori and Amina Mohamed Salad, followed by performances by Hassan Maikal, Tania Nathan, Laura Eklund Nhaga and Victoria Odum.

The final 30 minutes of the evening are reserved for an “Open Mic” style section, in which members of the audience are welcome to participate. Those who are interested can bring pieces of their own work that in some way connect to our theme (Past, Present and Future).

Lavarunouden ilta, missä pohdiskelu, tutkiskelu, tarkkailu, pelko ja odotus punoutuvat yhdeksi. Kolmiosainen motiivi rohkaisee taiteilijoita käsittelemään mennyttä, miettimään nykyhetkeä ja visioimaan tulevaa.

Tilaisuuden ensimmäisen osuuden käynnistää pääkaupunkiseudun nuoriso, kun Acquelline Kingori, Saamia Mohamed sekä Amina Mohamed Salad nousevat kukin lavalle. Illan aikana esiintyvät myös Hassan Maikal, Tania Nathan, Laura Eklund Nhaga ja Victoria Odum.

Illan viimeinen puolituntinen on varattu open mic -osiolle, jonka aikana lava avautuu yleisölle. Halukkaat voivat valmistautua lukemaan tekstejään, jotka jollain tapaa kytkeytyvät mennyttä, nykyistä ja tulevaa tarkastelevaan teemaamme.
