Ilija Trojanow: A Thousand and One Mornings

Reading and Performance

In »Tausend und ein Morgen« (tr: A Thousand and One Mornings), Ilija Trojanow sends his heroine Cya on a journey through time to the pirates of the Caribbean and to the turmoil of the Russian Revolution. Powerful and playful, highly poetic, and emotional, the text combines narrative virtuosity and critical thinking to create a modern epic that dares to take a fresh look at the future. A utopian novel in which, among other things, the speculative worlds of Ursula K. Le Guin are echoed. Musicians Dietmar Wiesner and Sava Stoianov from the Ensemble Modern will accompany the book premiere.
