VERA POLOZKOVA POETRY & SONGS
On stage, Vera Polozkova and musician Alexander Manotskov communicate through antiphonal dialogue. This is a rare combination of the song genre and the spoken word, in which the poetic text receives a new expression in vocal form and musical accompaniment.
“Hand Luggage” is a dialogue between two authors, a composer and a poet, like a personal archive of plots and stories they eye-witnessed. Previously, it sounded like an attempt at a summary, a detailed account of what a person says goodbye to and what a person gains when he enters maturity. Now it is a confession about life before the war. About what we actually took with us when we left.
Vera Polozkova: «We sing and read about what a person feels when the world is cracking right under their feet. About war, about loss, about gratitude, about hope, about despair. About memory. About what remains yours when you lose everything. About what cannot be taken away from you as long as you are alive».
