The Offering. Spoken-Word-Konzert von Omar Musa und Mariel Roberts

In the organizer's words:

The multi-award-winning Australian author, poet and rapper Omar Musa and the internationally renowned American cellist and composer Mariel Roberts bring a dramatic seafaring monologue to the stage with "The Offering". The stirring music, poetry and theater performance is rooted in the tradition of oral histories and explores themes of seafaring, environmental degradation, belonging and borderlessness, using Omar's family history in Southeast Asia as a hook. The show combines storytelling, poetry, hip-hop and live music with sound recordings made in the forests and ocean off the island of Borneo in the Malay Archipelago. Omar's ancestors were famous for their seafaring activities as traders, explorers and raiders. However, their ancestral waters are now threatened by climate change, overfishing and pollution.
