The poet on a boat *
Performing by Olga Podobinschi and Mihai Maniceanu

* This piece was written in summer 2012. in Bucharest as one of five pieces in the cycle dedicated to Danish writer Hans Christian Andersen.
Andersen was not only writing ferry tales as it is most commonly known but he was also an ardent traveler. During his interesting journeys he kept writing his diaries, the travelogues.
Some 170 years ago Andersen travels through Europe, from the north to the Black Sea and than back from Istanbul to Germany along the Balkans. He travels on foot, uses carriages, rides on a donkey, sails on a ship...
His journey on a boat takes him along Danube, passing by Ottoman provinces of Walachia, Bulgaria, Serbia. Andersen records what he sees and hears and writes it down in his travelogue "A Poet's Bazaar" published in Copenhagen in 1842.
Today, I can see him standing on the boat deck and I can imagine what he was seeing then.
"Poet on a boat" was performed for the first time in September 2012, in Belgrade.
