Catastrophe/Forms : WW1 in 9 Pictures
Catastrophe/Forms was originally created by Johann Reißer for the Berlin poesiefestival’s 2014 series of events to mark the centenary of WWI. The original project presented war poetry from 34 countries accompanied by a curated collage of images from those desperate years. From marking the war’s start marking to its end and from the Triple Alliance to the Triple Entente: the Byre Youth Theatre are bringing the project to Scotland for StAnza 2018, with a performance which interweaves recordings of young people from across Europe reading the war poems in their own languages.
