For the second annual Camaradefest, the day-long festival crowning the Enemies Project, Nick Murray and Aki Schilz collaborated on a dynamic performance poem. Taking the structure of a game, Remembrance House can take a variety of paths, passing back and forth between the performers. The poem explores shifting memory and dreams through the exploration of a decrepit house.
“100 poets, 50 pairs, one day. Starting at 12 noon and finishing late at night, Camaradefest is a unique annual one day explosion of dynamic collaboration in contemporary avant garde and literary poetics. On October 25th 2014, at the Rich Mix arts centre, near Brick Lane, London, a century of poets produced 50 brand new collaborative pieces of text and poetry, written specifically for the festival and premiered on the day. The crescendo of the Enemies project’s second year, this ambitious exploration of the possibilities of collaboration in poetry evidenced the true width and depth of contemporary poetry.”
