THE LAST KISS
Abbaye de Neumünster Luxembourg/Grund
Salle José Ensch
May, 1, 2016; 16h15 – 17h00
ABSTRACT: Alex Fohl is going to read a selection of love poems written by his alter ego Ed Webster who will soon publish his first book: The Taming Shroud. Materializing illusions, The Taming Shroud aims at visualizing poetry and poetizing visions including anything that lies in between such as dark intervals taking their toll and light moments longing to be consumed. While death comes and takes it all, day after day and year after year, Ed Webster has started his photopoetic journey to reach the bottom of things. The Taming Shroud is about friendship, little secrets and battles, a story of love and freedom, an essay on hope and loss facing the question: What is left, when we are gone? Sharing the burden of mankind and facing the Absurd, we all deserve a last kiss, being strangers on our way through a godless universe.

André Mergenthaler: cello loops
André Mergenthaler is well known for being a passionate cellist and composer who has performed on stages around the world. His most intimate relationship with his beloved instrument and his famous cello loops which draw an outstanding bow from classical music to rock and jazz will perfectly match the abyssal poetry of a passionate ghostwriter who is looking for beauty, the powerful beauty of the word.
