Alev Adil's Memory in the Dead Zone in conversation with Rozanne Hawksley's War and Memory

at the Queens’s House in Greenwich on Thursday the 16th and Friday the 17th of October.

11 October 2014 - 3:23pm

Alev Adil's 40 minute multimedia poetry performance is a conversation with the War and Memory exhibition of Rozanne Hawksley’s poignant and powerful installations, exploring the nature and meaning of the commemoration and memorialization of war, considering the impact of conflict on combatants, family, friends and ultimately the nation.
There is guided tour of the exhibition from 6.30 before the performance at 7.40. Alev's performance speaks to Rozanne as a sister-child of war, from her memories in the wake of World Wars 1 and 2 in Portsmouth, and Alev's from the small wars of 1963 and 1974 in Cyprus, both celebrating love in the face of loss.
The stunning setting of the Queen’s House, which was once a school educating boys for joining the Navy, is haunted by history and all the boys lost to war at sea and is fitting for a performance dedicated to Cypriot poet Lysandros Pitharas, for Alev "we were always on the same side in the war on love".
