The one subject at the centre of this night’s efficiency is, with none doubt, the topic standing on the centre of the work of its two excellent actors: the cultural identification of the artist. Poetry, as the very best artwork of language, is routinely, with the gesture of exploration it implies, very deeply rooted within the floor of its personal tradition. But, and this the productive rigidity that can make this night’s occasion so particular: Poetry is on the one hand dependent of the language it’s written in, however alternatively the music of poetry transcends this language as quickly as it’s enounced and provides the poetical expression a common facet: one thing that goes past the obstacles of language, of nations.
And that is precisely the problem of tonight’s night: to point out how poetry can change into the expression of a robust nationwide and cultural identification and on the identical time specific by its music and with music the thought of universality and shared humanity. Greater than that: how can poetry, from its cultural id develop as much as a common place that may then additionally make his cultural id turn out to be collective? The Arab poet that embodies this obvious contradiction to perfection is the Syrian poet Adonis: his poetry combines the themes of fluidity, exile, metamorphosis with a transparent tribute to the custom of Arab writing.
He has reached, like no different Arabic author of his technology, worldwide fame and is right this moment thought-about as one in every of right now’s biggest residing poets. Imagining Adonis assembly Oud legend Naseer Shamma for an inventive dialogue represents an inventive occurring of prime significance each regionally and internationally.
An unforgettable, uncompromising, totally sensible and riveting efficiency awaits the general public. If music and poetry have ever merged collectively, to provide solutions to the questions of humanity it is going to be on this very particular night time.
