"We can no longer speak to those who fought in the trenches. But we can
speak their language. In German, French, Italian, Dutch, Russian and
Turkish with English narration and surtitles, the imaginative response
to conflict will be explored in a unique multimedia performance. From
the euphoria of 1914 to the disillusionment that soon set in, video art
combined with spoken and written word will bring war poetry to life and
reveal new European perspectives on WW1."
