The multilingual poetry performance "Reveries about Language" (by Jasmina Bolfek-Radovani Mina Ray and Catherine Boyle) took place on 20 March, Pinter Studio, London. It was the first in a series of immersive live performances conceived as part of my multilingual poetry project "Unbound".
Imagined as a multitude of sonic, visual and textual ‘promenades’ inviting the public to immerse themselves in the multi-sensorial experiences of Jasmina's poetry in English, French and Croatian, these multimedia poetry performances aim to show how the spoken word, sound and image can interact in an innovative way to create a series of ‘unbound’ or free expressions.
