Pier Paolo Pasolini, a master of 20th century Italian cinema and literature, was first of all a poet. Poetry is the centrepiece of Pasolini’s multi-faced art legacy.  As he once said 'I wrote poetry in the form of cinema', claiming that he started to scribe poetry at the age of seven and never stopped.  This performance by Nestor Saied (Italy) and Benjamin Chow (Singapore) is intended to provide the audience with a sample of Pasolini’s gentle yet powerful poetry. Excerpts from his seminal collections Gramsci’s Ashes and The Religion of My Time will be recited and performed. Two actors and two languages will present the intrinsic musicality of Pasolini’s poetry in an intertwined performance of music and words.
