    Veranstaltung Literaturwerkstatt Berlin: Juni 2013 Do 13.06.2013 - 20:00 Uhr Vom Träumen und Lügen. Vier Kontinente im Spoken Verse LESUNG Mit Ise Lyfe USA TJ Dema Botswana Kosal Khiev USA / Kambodscha Peh Deutschland Reverend Aden DJ, USA / Deutschland Fuasi Abdul-Khaliq Jazz-Saxophonist, USA Moderation Pyranja Rapperin / Radio-Moderatorin, Deutschland Spoken Word, HipHop und Poesie von vier Kontinenten verschmelzen in Performance, Musik, Video und Stimme zu einem klangvollen Gesamterlebnis. Die Texte über Lügen und Träume werden von DJ-Beats und Jazz-Klängen begleitet. Wie durchströmt Jazz die Klänge des HipHop und wo durchdringen DJ-Beats die Poesie des Spoken Word? Die Künstler werden an diesem Abend demonstrieren, wie nah sich Poesie, HipHop, Spoken Word und Jazz sind, und entführen das Publikum in die poetischen Welten von Kambodscha, Botswana und den USA, um wieder in Deutschland zu landen – mit Themen im Koffer, die hier wie dort gleich aktuell sind.
