Pop Up Teatr & Sadsongskomplex:fi: With Charles Bukowski in The Bar
An audio performance for one spectator with headphones
Old Bukowski recalls how it all began: poverty and rented apartments, auxiliary work and loose women, love and sex, loneliness and madness on the verge of suicide. He reflects on creativity, on writing that has always been a priority, on his unique path in literature, on personal battles that he fought all his life.
You walk down the Fleminginkatu street. Enter the Pulmu bar. Sit down at the bar. The bartender hands you over headphones and a beer. You stay one-on-one with the life story and poetry of Charles Bukowski.
