VOICES FROM ENGHAVE PLADS
After 8 years of metro construction and the closure of a square that is the setting for much local life in Vesterbro, Enghave Plads is alive again. Singer and composer Anna Kruse wants to give voice to those who were affected, and act as a poetic mouthpiece.
Anna Kruse will explore how to transform interviews into poetic material for interpretation through song in her experiment “Voices at Enghave Plads”. Is it possible to develop a proper methodology?
With this project she wants to give voice to citizens who are connected to the square in some way; how does the drunkard, the skater, the baker or the dog walker experience the change that has happened and how has it affected their lives?
