The poems merge with original electric musical scores by composer and cellist George Crotty. An installation of a video art piece by Syrian artist Khalil Younis ties the creative elements together in one multi-sensory experience. The performance elicits an experience that explores themes of- time, change, loss, war, and exile. It does it through creative elements that transcend the collective/public into the singular/private.
