Voices from the Dark
Dash Arts with Prove They’re Alive! campaign present
Voices From The Dark, an evening of poetry and activism.
Voices From The Dark will highlight the power of arts in activism and bring information about the disappeared in Turkmenistan, and, specifically, the work of Batyr Berdyev, former minister of Foreign Affairs in Turkmenistan, political prisoner and poet to a broader audience. We will launch a collection of poetry, Parting Song, published by Crude Accountability and written by Batyr Berdyev early in his Pr*son term in 2002 and 2003 and smuggled out of Pr*son. Originally written in Russian, the poems convey internal resistance, integrity of the soul, wisdom, love, and loneliness. We’ll bring together Parting Song translator James Womack, human rights activist and Turkmenistan specialist Ivar Dale and other activists for an evening of poetry, live music, activism and conversation.
Supported by Open Society Foundation.
