Sat 9 March
Carriageworks Theatre - The Studio
Damir Avdić – Bosnian musician, storyteller and writer joins Slovenian war reporter, film
director, author and ‘left-wing extremist’ Erik Valenčič to bring a unique performance event
to the UK for the first time.
Rhythmic electric guitar loops punctuate two very different but complementary storytelling
styles. Erik Valenčič shares an unfolding narrative of the chaotic, hedonistic and
harrowing experiences of a war correspondent in South Sudan; staged in parallel with Damir
Avdić’s moving account of the inhumanity of capitalism, told as a series of funny and deeply
resonant moments of cultural and political misunderstanding of a Balkan worker in the
American service industries. Follow these two unique artists as they present a picture of the world as it really is, without filters but with empathy, humour and sharp energy.
“Damir Avdić machine guns his stories with his giant voice and makes them as sharp as a razor, direct as a shot in the head and sincere as the heart.”
Music critic, Igor Bašin
