Near My Ears

To be in a time of war”, a text by the Lebanese philoso­pher Etel Adnan. Adnan, is the start­ing point for a ram­ble through the streets of a city cen­ter. Simul­ta­ne­ous to war reports and world events, tourists stream towards the city cen­ter, home­less peo­ple, work­ing peo­ple, chil­dren at play, par­ty-goers, fol­low their every­day lives. As a mobile music the­ater, Near My Ears seeks out places where the quo­tid­i­an and the polit­i­cal meet to cre­ate an approach to glob­al con­nect­ed­ness.
