Title: The word of the worlds, 2017, Rotterdam, The Netherlands

Settlers, Missionaries, Secularists and Rappers. The Gospel has been preached and the Claim has already risen. As antique spokesmen of a sacred message, rappers have become the witnessing voices of the City of Rotterdam. A group of Spoken Word artists, whose family are native from the former Dutch colonies, have intervened on my project with their poems and claims. What would you teach if you were the ones just landed in Rotterdam? What would it be your message to spread on these Nordic lands? Few lines to establish their thoughts and a sharp rhythm to provoke the audience. The spectator is subjected to a mystical experience, from the preaching of a vanishing Gospel to the affirmation of the Poem: among the Word of the Worlds.
