REMEMBRANCE is a medley of readings of English poetry, extracts from diaries and letters written during the First World War, and maybe even a song or two. It is a tribute to the soldiers who gave their lives while fighting for their country and for freedom.
We hope that, with REMEMBRANCE, we can recreate memories of and images from a critical piece of history. World War 1, or ”The Great War” was the world’s first global conflict which resulted in unprecedented carnage and destruction with more than 9 million soldiers killed by the end of the war in 1918.
As the philosopher Santayana said: ”Those who cannot remember the past, are condemned to repeat it”.
REMEMBRANCE has been approved by Kulturstyrelsen's Refusionsudvalg. This means that kommunes wishing to buy a performance of Remembrance will be reimbursed with 50% of the cost.
The performance lasts c. 1 hour. A list of the poems read during the performance is available on request.
