Sudden Streets.Poetry performance Author: Albena Baeva & Ivanka Mogilska, Runabout Project

The performance Sudden Streets tells a story of happenstance, of unexpected meetings and their consequences. The performance is an improvisation based on the eponymous novel by Ivanka Mogilska. It uses a modified typewriter and a kalimba.
During the performance, we open the book at random pages and read a fragment. We record sentences, sounds and melodies, which are then played back, modified and manipulated to create an atmosphere in which the story unfolds. Each time the story is surprisingly different, with happenstance leading us where we need to go.
